We have been desperate for some rain here in the Cotswolds for a long time now, and the earth in our garden looked very cracked. But this week, our patience was rewarded, we have had some rain, and everywhere is starting to turn green. Our garden wildlife pond is now refilling, so the birds can start to bathe again. No sign yet of any juvenile newts, though … the adults laid their eggs a while back.
