In the last 2 days we have received 2 months' worth of rain. So far, although very high and fast flowing, the river has not flooded. A river of water has been coming off the surrounding hills down the road and it is this water that has flooded the garden. This is made much worse by the speed of passing vehicles, causing torrents of water to flood into the garden.
The rest of the week is supposed to be drier - let's hope so as it can't get much wetter! But we are luckier than many people. Even the ducks look miserable!!
