It’s raining for the first time this season. Yes, ‘season’ is a daft word to use but it’s not the ‘first time this year’ since we had rain back in Spring. This is the first rain, well, since it stopped raining back in about March. So, the first in around six or seven months.

It started with a lightning storm a few miles north while we were out this evening. By the time we were home and had finished dinner there was fantastic sheet lightning around the house and now, an hour later, thunder and heavy rain. We’ve popped the fly-screens and closed the windows part-way (again, for the first time since late Spring) and are now enjoying the sound and smell of the rain on the garden.

Not sure we ever expected to miss the rain but this is lovely.
