Or at least those of our olive trees I mentioned earlier. Yes it has rained. Not heavily but its a start. The top photo is from the balcony decking. The second is of the dark clouds higher up in the mountains behind us. We are promised more rain today and tomorrow. It is still easily hot enough to swim but my poor trees are getting a drink which is the main thing, as I explained this morning.
Obviously the rain today and the heavy rain promised for tomorrow or the fact that temperatures throughout August have been normal will not be reported on the BBC. I cannot think why.
