It’s this time of year that the weather throws everything at us. The other day I had glorious sunshine broke intermitently with rain and hail. Today like everyone else I have been awaiting the the BIG STORM. I heard it at approx 7am when I woke for work.
A few pots had blown over, even though I had moved some for protection the night before.
I thought damage would follow with trees in the woods at the bottom of the garden swaying this way and that but I’ve got off pretty much with nothing but severe puddles all over the garden.
I could see the rain water flowing in parts of the garden and making it’s way to the bottom. As I’m on a slope it was making it’s way past the tree ferns to the dip in the woods where a pond forms on days like this.
When i moved here approx 2 years ago in May/June the garden was nothing but lawn and it was sodden, I have since dug and put plants in at the same time removing lots’ and lots’ of bricks, slabs and rubble. Since there is nothing but clay underneath I put the gravel ditch in as a bit of a feature but also with a purpose, for day’s such as today.
As I look out the window now it has pretty much dried up, yet I wait for the further on slaught that the weather men have promised.
