Amazing April light just before the rain

It's been hot and dry for a couple of weeks and we really need a bit of rain to soak everything I've planted over the past month or so. Yesterday evening the sky became dark and with a beautiful light and the wind stopped for just a few minutes before the drops started to fall.

I've just checked the water butts and they've been topped up overnight. Perfect timing !

You can send some our way if you have too much - we had the first rain yesterday since March - just a bit of drizzle and the land needs so much more.

Magic! I love it when it rains overnight and you wake to a lovely fresh morning, and then the sun comes out again.

Off topic request - was it you who made natural paint using amongst other things yoghurt? I'm sure you had a post on it but I can't find it. Any chance you could drop me an email if it was you as we are at the stage of painting the gite. Many thanks.
