They look marvellously water-logged, Alan.

[You could do this... https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2018/apr/15/wales-cycling-cambrian-mountains-rhayader-powys ...on your Yellow Peril bicycle, but I wonder why the old MTB would not be a better choice?]
Alan: The previous day was our summer; now we are back into rain. As regards the bike ride, we have some some of this on our MTBs; I celebrated my 50th birthday in the area. In another trip we stayed in the Neuadd Arms. A fine area for mountain biking and my decent down one of the mountains and a jump off a rocky ledge and still revered by my chums.
Beautiful big drops!
Alan: Flowers look even better with a sprinkling of rain.
Ooooh - pretty, indeed!!
Alan: Spring has arrived! Almost overnight, suddenly it;s all looking very pretty again. Thanks, Elizabeth.

These yellow flowery things look very happy with this rain, Alan.
Alan: They may have been happy but I was less so .. yet another wet bike ride :{ Thanks, Astrid.

They seem to enjoy the rain - but they live in England and are stoic, hardy things - we had a wonderfully sunny day yesterday.
Alan: You may have had the sun that we had Saturday possibly. Yesterday's rain contributed to the fall of one of my lady friends but luckily she is not badly hurt but quite shaken. Now there is no rain in the forecast for this week and we are hoping that we can now get our shorts on! Thanks, Philine!

I love your horticultural knowledge Alan, it makes me feel that I am not alone.
Alan: I have other skills I'm sure but I cannot immediately think what they are.

We had no rain in tropical Bath yesterday.

I like your image, these are called PRIMROSES
Alan: I bow to your superior knowledge; Oh Wise One. There this no mention of the R word in the forecast for this week.
These are very pretty. I think they might be primroses although they don't look prim they look far more jolly than that
Alan: Ah yes, of course. I had them labelled in my system as pansies - doh! Even I know the difference sad
They do look very nice Alan, Mauren has some of these in the garden.
Alan: They have been nicely irrigated and have no chance of drying out for a day or two yet smile

Very pretty with the water droplets on them.
Alan: Thank you! Hopefully that's the last of the rain now for a few days.

excellent! i like the almost transparent feel of the petals against the leathery looking leaves.
Alan: Thanks, Ayush. This was in our old cemetery; plenty to keep the photographer occupied for days smile
