Let it rain...

Having spent yesterday afternoon in the garden we need some rain, the recent hot spell has at last given way to some cooler weathe, but, while south and east of us there is a lot of rain being delivered by the clouds, over us in our maountain fastness, its been a bit more patchy. Part of the problem is, of course, the fact that we are in the mountains. Rain tends to fall most heavily against the windward face and less so on the leeward side. When you are sort of "in between" the two you get the overspill from one side or the other.

We have some large rain water barrels we use to water the garden (Mains water is metered here in Germany!) and at present two of our barrels are about one third and one is empty. We need more rain... Please?
