I read today that it's been the wettest May on record up here on the Isles. Back in Somerset where I have been for nearly three weeks, it's virtually the opposite. In fact, some days it was too hot to stay out in the sunshine so I let my sisters play with the bee-hives while I watched from a respectful distance.
The area where Lynne my eldest sister lives is called The Levels - on account of the area being level no doubt. Lots of old farms in the area and this wonderful van that has been in the spot gradually re-uniting with nature.
