After years of drought and low rainfall, we've had about 100mm of rain and you wouldn't know it was the same place. A friend hadn't been to Boyce gardens so I went with her and took my drone to see if I might get some flight time while she took photos, and thankfully I did. While I'm far from an accomplished pilot I still like what I did manage to capture.

I was thinking my two cymbidium orchids would benefit from being potted up into the next size pot so here's how I did that. Strike Back for Orchids

I took my normal watering time to plant some Cress.
I've had the packet of Cress seeds for weeks now but have been waiting for a change in the weather.
Also added some GoGo Juice (see below) by Neutrog to my lemon and lime trees hoping a shower or storm would wash it into the soil (still waiting).
Came home from work and was going to do a little bit of this and that in the garden but we'd had a shower of rain (2mm) and the afternoon was cool and everything was damp so I gave it a miss.

No fancy soil preparation. I did add a few decent scoops of Searls 5 in 1 and worked it gently into the top few inches of soil though.
Watered them in with some super soil wetter because of the soil and the 5 in 1 being on the dry side of things.
Hopefully, the rain does the rest.
This morning I had five minutes up my sleeve before I had to leave for work so I ran around and grabbed a handful of weeds and threw them into the compost.
Always satisfying when I can do that.
