Summer Rain falls........

Great British tradition occurred today, roughly a week into our scorching summer (A regular 2 weeks out of 52 here!) we had tropical downpours, complete with thunder, lightning & the hilarious sight of helpless people in shorts & sandals, running like drowned rats for shelter!

Oh when do we ever learn that an English summer is as temporal as the setting sun or song of a shrill chorus of dawn birdsong, as swift as a passionate embrace with a new lover.

Having said that I can guarantee we'll continue to suffer the worst of pale skin sunburn & moaning about the heat for many days to come yet!

The greatest moment of a break in our summer weather is the scent of summer's rain on parched Earth, that wonderful real aroma of freshness, long over due, whereby the green plants & trees seem to come alive as they soak their roots.

Call me a sentimental romantic, or whatever for this observation but these things I feel are best shared rather than completely forgotten. as I've never kept a diary, I feel my duty to report despite a lack of originality
