|Trafalgar Square will be dry for the rest of the summer.|
|My thyme is already looking greener after the rain.|
I saw Doris Lessing read from and talk about this novel years and years ago at Bath Festival, and I remember being struck by her comment that the book was basically an adventure story. It's typical of the Nobel Prize winning Doris Lessing that even in a tale that she said she wrote to entertain her son, there had to be a strong social message.
So I should wish you a happy rainy Easter Monday....
