I know there are those, especially in the dryer southern hemisphere nations, who will say I’m preaching heresy by suggesting rain is bad but this caption is only to be taken in context. Yesterday, we experienced torrential rains in places here in Ireland. I took this photo to show just why Ireland is so green. Yes, the rain brings that green and all the benefits yet, at times, that rain can also slow things down significantly. What’s the old story about making hay while the sun shines? Yep, you certainly can’t make hay when it’s pouring!
