The weather has been dreadful. Gales and torrential rain have swept the country these last few days. Scotland has taken the full force of the storms. In my area there have been fatalities due to fallen trees. My heart goes out to those that have lost loved ones.
This is our drive. Fortunately Mr P had the ditches cleared in the autumn, so this water will eventually drain away.
This is the wildlife pond that is close to the copse. A few weeks ago it was virtually empty. How things change.
Most of this water will work its way to the river at the end of the road. Things are set to change overnight, so hopefully things will be a little calmer tomorrow :)
I wished for rain at the beginning of the year......we have drought orders waiting in the wings. As mother always says, be careful what you wish for.....I should have said 'a little rain please' I cannot imagine that the drought orders will be put in place now.....
