Through the Garden Gate August 2022
Children return to schools at the end of the week here and it feels as if Autumn is approaching- the temperature in the mornings is cooler and shoes are suddenly wet with dew on the first dog walk of the day. At long last in August we had some rain. It was strange seeing it again after an absence of two months! You never get quite what you wish for and the heavy rain storms instantly caused local flooding and some cliff falls along the Jurassic Coast. Having become accustomed in recycling the washing-up water onto the garden it has been a relief to have the water butts full again, but snails and weeds have reappeared in numbers!
