After the Rain

After the Rain

The rain here was horrible. There were a lot of local floods and the run off has caused some damage on the roads locally. We saw a car, just a mile from here, up to its windows in water and the main carriageway was closed two days in a row. We are so lucky to be in our never affects us except in that the house seems to begin to get a bit damp feeling with the stone walls. But a dehumidifier sorts that out easily. The good thing is, it makes it easy to move plants around while you can still see the top growth of what's around them which is better than moving them in winter when I've forgotten what it looks like in summer! And the crab apple here is looking great after its move earlier in the year from pot to soil. It has really enjoyed the extra rainfall.

Being elevated here we too are lucky not to have to worry about the flooding. You might have heard on the news that the Winchburgh rail tunnel was flooded yet again. We have had a few power cuts but thanks to upgrading in the local networks they did not last long.

Yes, I did..what a nightmare. Stuck in a dark tunnel for hours. We just had a really hard hailstorm!

We have been fairly lucky, when I read of all the flooding and damage in other parts of the country.....glad you escaped K...
I am itching to move all the new roses, but it will possibly be October or November, so we have been pruning large shrubs instead!! and drawing out plans!!
