Wet summer

The miserable wet summer weather continues, the wettest June since records began in 1910.  Twice as much rainfall than normal over the last 3 months and heavy rain forecast again for tomorrow.   I know the gardens needs rain but this is now beyond a joke.  The weeds are running riot and I don't feel like going out there removing them in this weather. 

The brick patio and graveled area are a disgrace but I hate the job.

The teasels below seem to like the rain, they are growing like triffids,  one is at least 7 feet tall.

Not many butterflies around in the cold wet weather. The only things that seem to like the rain are the snails and slugs which I dislike immensely.   Found this big one munching away at a lupin plant.
