What a mixed day, The Children's Mother flung open the curtains this morning to pass on the news that the garden was under water. Just rain this time but last autumn it was a leaking mains water pipe.
Out and about, the roads were in many places under water thanks largely to blocked drains, our shiny new Unitary Authority, Northumberland County Council doesn't believe in rain water!
Up at the cottage wet snow was falling.
This evening the flood in the garden had receded enough for me to take a picture of the first of our narcissi and this lovely pulmonaria.
