Colour is emerging from the sea of greenery that the rain produced.
Spuds and other crops are shaping up well in the vegetable garden.
Earlier in the month we cut back a large and prickly bush on the east side of the house in preparation for going green.
In its place we now have an air source heat pump.
It takes in air from outside, warms the house and expels cold air. (And that's as technical as you'll ever get from me!) Workmen were busy all over the house throughout week and the fittings in the kitchen look like the engine room of a submarine. But come the winter the whole house should have a constant level of green warmth which I hope will make the whole enterprise worthwhile.
Of course it didn't stop there because electricity is needed for the pump. So now we have a block of solar panels on the roof. We've gone green - and the sun is shining!
Guess who's a happy bunny!
