My camera has decided not to speak to my computer. I don't know why but it means that I cannot upload photos to the blog. In the meantime I have taken a picture of the banksiae coming into bloom using my mobile phone. Not great quality but confirmation that we have FINALLY had some rain and a decent amount too. Now of course the weeds are rushing out of the ground but the plants are looking a lot happier and I hope will manage to outpace the weeds. Frantic planting now - it was so hot and dry in March that I didn't dare put new plants in the ground.
