The heat of an unusual summer's day was intense, the scorching sun dried up the soil in the garden as the long hot evening passed into night. In the very early hours, a tremendous crash and a bang exploded to wake up the whole household. The lightening flashed and lit up the bedroom after an incredible clap of thunder that seemed to shake the very foundations of the house. Then another lightening bolt delivered a flash that lit up the early hours of the morning, followed by a tremendous crash of thunder. The rain came teeming down pitter-pattering on the pavements and the glass windows. A long few days of a heatwave had finally culminated in a fearsome storm. 'This should do the garden the world of good,' I thought as I opened the curtains to view the lightening and the very welcome rain teeming down, The storm passed over very quickly and the quiet of the early morning returned.
I dug some more new potatoes and onions with a cabbage, and I picked some beautiful Loganberries to take home to Margaret.
