I tried out my new wellies on Friday morning when I went for a walk round the allotments. There had been plenty of heavy rain on Wednesday so I wasn’t surprised at what I saw.
The ground was badly waterlogged and some plots, especially those on the other side of the roadway to mine, were partly under water. Here are Margo’s still flowering pot marigolds and David’s leeks showing how bad it was.
Thankfully my plot had no standing water on it but the paths were very squelchy underfoot. The plum tree had lost all it’s leaves apart from this handful. You can see Fox Junior sitting under the rose Pretty Lady keeping a watchful eye out.
It rained for much of yesterday, and there’s more heavy rain due later tonight and most of tomorrow so I think that I’ll be wearing my wellies again when I’m next there.
Have a good week!
