For about the last five weeks it's rained nearly every day, and more rain is predicted for the next five days. Yesterday at about 6 pm we had what can only be described as a cloudburst, the rain came down in a solid sheet with small hail for about 20 minutes.
The ground is sodden and saturated.
The pond just below the cottage has been overflowing for two weeks now.
Every water course is flowing strongly and the rivers are close to bursting their banks.
Best of all everything is a lush green.
