The rain has arrived !! I am delighted to see it, it will clear the air and get rid of the haze, the only thing is it looks like we could get several days, I think we will be getting the tail end of the american storms, but much diluted of course having crossed the atlantic.
I went down to the local bog this morning to get a picture before the rain started.

The picture shows the turf , some of which has been "footed" to dry in the wind and some is still on the ground yet to be footed. the bog looks very dry, there have been bog fires all over the country this last week so the fire brigade will be glad to see the rain also !


Photo comment By omnishots: Looks like wigwams. Never in my life have I seen planks of turf like these ones. Must be cut for huge, open fireplaces in gigantic palaces. No closed-stove use for these!! Love the picture
