We had some rain this night and morning.
I walked into the garden to expect everything soaking wet, but it was dry. I watered the border plants yesterday evening, and they were still looking fresh, but everything else is so freaking bone dry that any water gets absorbed and vanishes immediately.

Last time I've mown the hay was early June.
I still remember the times I had to mow the grass in summer and not in winter instead of the other way round. Strange days.

The water debit is worsening badly, with salt water intruding the rivers from the seas, so the water companies have to get drinking water from canals fed from lakes 100 km away. Shipping is reduced because of the current in the canals and locks not operating to prevent the intrusion of salt riverwater into the canal systems.

We need rain, lots of it. Setting new temperature and drought records is fun for a while, but the novelty has worn off and we need some relief.
