Nice to see a little wet stuff here too.
The grass was about to go roots up.

Very light occasional bouts of drizzle on and off all day but not enough to make the ground, pavements wet . :)

There was a bracing dampness in the air* when I went out for a ride this afternoon. After the "scorchio" conditions on the last few rides, it was actually strangely enjoyable.

Let me know when it eventually reaches you - then I'll know I've got a few minutes to go and get the washing in off the line...

Other than a slightly damp cat in the middle of the night, it seems to be dodging the Surrey-ish portion of the North Downs so far.

Definitely cooler though but I'm damned if I am going back to long trousers. Shorts through to October now. I may not like feet (and especially toes) but I don't mind legs. I'd wear a skirt if I were a girl, which I might be of course, I could just be playing a bloke on the internet. Maybe I really am Jess, and thus undead, but figure you wouldn't believe me.

Anyway, regardless, I'm not wearing a skirt at this moment. But for the future, who knows.

The roses got battered overnight - the Old English ones are looking very old this morning and I haven't looked at the ones that hang over the front fence.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

It's too late for a lot of crops round here :(
I was talking to one farmer who is thinking that most of his fields won't be worth the cost of harvesting so he'll have to plough them back in and start again next year.

I'd wear a skirt if I were a girl

Surely you can wear what the hell you like if you're WFH. Just as long as you remember not to stand up during Zoom meetings.

It's supposed to be raining here today. Apparently it's 0.2mm an hour constantly since this morning. So far none of it has hit the ground :( Would quite like it to rain. Plants desperately need it. And with the amount of time since it last rained, the petrichor should be wonderful...

I went to the shop in mild drizzle last night.  The ground was damp enough to make me take it easy on the bollocks infra, though (shades of SteveC's post above) the perpetual puddle of building site run-off at the pedestrian conflict point at the bottom of the hill was still absent.

Other than some gloom and a few spits of rain on the window about an hour ago, it doesn't seem to have amounted to much.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Still nothing here, though it did go very grey for a while.

Real men also wear skirts if they are eg cannibalistic warriors of the South Pacific. Though not when playing rugby.

Had some proper rain come over just now, I tried to photograph it, but failed. Plants look wet now. It's still drizzling.

Yay rain!

Hmm, we've at least another week with nothing more than a bit of drizzle forecast.

I have a wife who might be less keen to find me rummaging through her clothes. That said, I'm not sure I'd survive, she's not just filled the wardrobes, they're fighting for space in Narnia. I'm sure we used to have more cats, but they squeezed in there and never got out, forever compressed in the folds of a coat she bought in 2008 and never wore again.

Our local pub landlord always wears a kilt, I have no idea why. But to be honest, I was thinking of something a bit more feminine.

Very Scottish King King frontman Alan Nimmo wears a kilt on stage so I was a little disappointed when I encountered the band outside a venue and found him wearing jeans.
