The heat continues to provide a challenge but at least the clouds are giving a suggestion of rain. As this week moves on more and more flowers come into full bloom.
Thursday May 22nd – As one looks at the crops, their first thought is how parched they seem, and wishes for rain. The weather is very dull and the sky looks full of storm clouds.
Friday May 23rd – At last the long looked for event has happened. We had a storm. It was fairly general, and did a lot of good. The flowers and trees have lost their parched look and seem fresh again.
Saturday May 24th – The day has been very hot and sultry, there being very little wind, rain wanted again very badly.
Sunday May 25th – Weather much colder, a gentle refreshing rain fell all day and did a great deal of good.
Monday May 26th – It still continues cold but fine. The Oak trees are in leaf and the Sycamore trees are in blossom.
Tuesday May 27th – Weather much warmer; I saw some beautiful Clover & Speedwell growing in a field, and a most gorgeous bed of Rhododendrons.
Wednesday May 28th – Weather about the same; Roses & Iris’s in flower.
Nellie’s Nature Diary Project is coming towards its end – just three more days to come. I wonder how the weather of our month of May will have compared to Nellie’s.
