A nice sunny morning with a fair SW breeze was drying things up quite well, but along came two, so far, heavy showers and put everything back to square one..Am not a happy chappy about that but I suppose as rain is forecast in some form or other from now till whenever up this way I am lucky to have been able to enjoy what sunshine we are getting.
