After yesterday’s wall to wall sunshine today was the flip side of the coin, floor to ceiling rain. Unfortunately this meant I had to cancel my visit to Max’s, disappointing as we are only just getting to know one another. He had bravely been out for his constitutional and luckily agreed that it was a little soggy today for digging in the soil. So it was a day confined to barracks. Soup was made, a writing project completed and the chores list is now a little shorter; prevarication was also indulged. This beautiful grass, Hordeum jubatum or squirrel tail, was yesterday shamelessly waving its silver pink tassels in the balmy breeze. Today I am guessing it will be looking a little more like a water rat!
