An April with no rain
It’s been warm and dry here for what seems like forever. This evening I’m going out watering, and have been doing weekly waters for the past month or so… I can’t remember ever needing to do this in April before, especially in Devon. I think looking seriously at an irrigation system with drip tape is definitely required; standing with a hose, and lugging watering cans about the place is so time consuming, let alone exhausting! The weather has also made everything grow quickly, in fact tulips are nearly over, and peonies are getting ready to bloom. Here’s the best of our flowers from the past few weeks.
