Rain and Floods, Trees and Plants Rejoice!

During the last week there have been some wild storms across the UK. In parts of North East England we saw floods from rivers that hadn’t burst their banks in 30 years. It caused chaos on the roads, as our British weather always does, and people are now dealing with the clean-up operation and trying to prevent further damage as more rain is forecast.

In my part of the country, East Cheshire, we also had heavy rain and flooding in rural areas. I live in a canal town with a river running through, but there has been no significant flooding that I’m aware of. What I did notice is how brightly coloured all the plant life suddenly is. Our trees and plants are revelling in the excess rainfall, and are making good on its nurturing qualities.

Here are some photos I took of my garden plants earlier this week:

    In Cambridgeshire we’ve not suffered too badly, but you are right, the plants have loved the downpour. The apples on my tree are fabulous. Thanks for reminding me how brilliant our weather is, even when we complain so much.
