Winter has arrived It feels as if winter has arrived and with it the never ending rain Cape Town is known for, especially in the Claremont / Newlands area where I live. Days and days of non-stop rain that usually starts right at the end of April are not unusual in these parts. I popped outside today between downpours to check whether all 969 bulbs are still where they are supposed to be, buried in the earth – and Yay! They are! Nothing has been washed away, all looks good in the garden, just a bit wet … no new mole-hills either.

Raindrops keep fallin on my head

♫ Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin’ seems to fit ♪
Those raindrops are fallin’ on my head, they keep fallin’ ♫

♫ So I just did me some talkin’ to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way he got things done
Sleepin’ on the job
Those raindrops are fallin’ on my head, they keep fallin’ ♫

♫ But there’s one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won’t defeat me
♪ It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me ♫

♫ Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Cryin’s not for me ♪
‘Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothin’s worryin’ me ♫

♫ It won’t be long till SPRING steps up to greet me … ♪♪♪
(Lyrics by B.J. Thomas)

If I go a bit quiet on the blog its because its raining and I don’t have too much to say …

To those of you that can, Happy Gardening!
