Well, wasn't June wet? Glad to see July if I'm honest but so far, that isn't looking very dry either. 
When I think of rain in the first half of summer, all I think about is how much it effects our breeding birds. Pied Flycatcher and many others really suffer when faced with bad weather. It can mean the difference between life and death. Below is just a picture of my wet Fuchsias that are being weight down by all the rain.
