It’s not surprising…

that the plot looked like this on Thursday morning following heavy rain overnight on top of last weekend’s very wet weather.

I’ve never seen it as bad as this before, and with more rain this weekend there’s little prospect of it drying out unless it stays dry for a couple of weeks.  Needless to say that I couldn’t do any plotting last week and it looks like I won’t be doing any next week either.

Looking round it’s good to see the rhubarb starting to show, and there are more daffodils Tete-a-tete appearing.

One of the annual flowers I’m growing this year is nasturtium  Princess of India, a dwarf form of the popular Empress of India.  The flowers are deep red and foliage blueish-green.

Have a good week!

    Oh dear — look at that standing water. It’s like that here in Kentucky too. We’ve had flood watches. Come September, there will be a drought!

  2. Yep, it’s a mud bath out there, good weather for ducks!

    There’s so much water around after the storms. As you say, it’ll take some time for everywhere to dry out, and that’s if there’s no more rain, no guarantee of that.

    It’s absolutely saturated out there at the moment isn’t it. The stream is as high as I’ve ever seen it and the pond is topped right up. Let’s hope things don’t start rotting. CJ xx

  5. Storm Dennis has been bad this weekend, everywhere is just so wet…
    I do feel so sorry for those who have been affected by floods.

    Roll on Spring.

    All the best Jan

    I’m considering nasturtiums too!

  7. My garden is waterlogged too. I’m also shocked to see all sort of plants and bulbs growing all at once. I have fuchsia and geraniums that didn’t even bother to die back over the winter months.

    Hope the weather is getting better where you are!
    Thanks and same to you!

    Hallo Flighty, Have just found your interesting site here. Are ‘you’ drying out now? Do you have Hellebores?

    • Flighty says:

      Gertie hello and welcome. Good for you, I hope you enjoy it. There’s no standing water now but the plot is still very soggy. Sadly no, I really don’t have the space for them. Take care. xx
