Swallows and Amazon

A swallow chick made its first visible appearance yesterday evening in the nest above the back door. I hope it likes rain as this little corner of Ireland has had more per square foot than the Amazon so far this month! I managed to take this photo whilst being divebombed by protective parents. The forecast is for rain until at least Wednesday. The planet might be getting warmer, but it just feels like wetter in this neck of the woods. At least it gives an excuse to read a book rather than tackle the waterlogged garden - which presently resembles a jungle! I need some reading with a lot of sun and some humour - suggestions?
