Several days now of balmy sunny days. Feels like summer has arrived in the gorge and we plan for a first pub garden pint later. The flip side is that we probably need rain for the region, but luckily all our rainwater harvesting systems are full: the big underground tank (4,000 litres), several 1000 litre IBC containers and a host of smaller butts. Last year at around this time we hit a long dry spell and so we have learnt not to assume more rain will come and top everything up and so are more prudent using it all.
