Wet, wet, wet!
We live in the so-called “sunny South”. What a joke! It has done nothing but rain for weeks and the ground is absolutely saturated.
I suppose we should be grateful ; others are far worse off, but it is still sad to see the drive and the lawns under water. My husband keeps wondering how many plants will survive. We have lots of trees but even the willow is beginning to look water-logged.
A lot of the trouble is that we are on the edge of heathland which is just slightly “uphill”. Former neighbours cut down a lot of trees and then promptly sold the place leaving our present neighbours with a bit of a problem.Why do people feel the urge to chop down trees? I can understand if the roots are giving trouble but it is still sad to see really old oak trees being levelled by people who are just property developers.
It’s still wet, wet, wet!
