And ….. Down came the Rain

It started as only a fine drizzle, then later it turned rather heavy.  It was also rather dull and dismal.

Best not to complain (but I probably will) as we have had a long and record breaking run of lovely sunny April weather.

The mornings rain didn’t quite reach the Bluebells, you can though see more clearly today that they are starting to fall back, the leaves first, soon those stems with their bells.

Then the heavens opened and the rain came down with a vengeance…

As I said…best not to complain….. the garden does need the rain 🙂

It wasn’t to be……. well not this year

Liverpool Waterfront 

If all had gone to plan,  today we should have been waving goodbye to Liverpool.  This trip would have been to Madeira, the Canary Islands and back via various ports of call in Portugal.

We all know why those plans have come to an abrupt halt.

I guess it will be next year, at the very earliest, that we will take that first evening stroll round the ships decks….. as to where the destination will be we will have to wait and see.  Maybe the reality will be for all of us….. stay close to home holidays

I wonder just what is on the Horizon for all of us.

Those memories we have made will be even more important 🙂
