A DIARY - PART FIVE
Think of England of most people think of rain. Well, it’s true we did have rain for a few days last week, but that already seems a distant memory as the temperature is here is now higher than in Alexandria in Egypt and the cloudless sky is about as blue is could possibly get! And of course, we still have a hose pie ban in force as we are officially a drought region! I can almost hear you laughing at my preposterous claims dear reader, but I’ve just been strolling round the park and what a very dry and arid place it has now become!
Look at this for instance. It’s what’s left of the stream which links the two lakes, and the water has all but dried up – the ducks having to walk!
There is however one little pool of water and that is currently occupied by our new ducklings!
According to the notices displayed around and about, the boating lake is due to open in a few weeks time. Not looking too hopeful right now!
There are some positive things happening in the park. The cafe is nearing completion – these two pictures were taken a few weeks apart.
It's is a similar situation over at the the new kid’s play area. The small photo of the playground was taken last month just before it was torn up, and it’s replacement is growing by the day.
I thought I'd leave you with some flowers before they shrivell up in the heat and die!
