Yesterday our garden was inundated with water after a storm of heavy rain, thunder and lightening.
All we could do was watch it through the windows as it gushed down from under the hedge which backs onto school grounds, ran across the garden and out onto the street.
Taking with it the contents of the pond and all the gravel which is now spread across the grass.
The step ladders were popped into the greenhouse when the rain started to keep them dry! They were being used to cut one of the tall hedges. The bags full of leaves which wouldn't fit in the garden wheelie bin were floating near the new fence.
There is a lot of clearing up to do today.
Two newts from the pond which were rescued and put back there.
Sorry no Five on Friday post today after the events both local and national yesterday but I'll give you a link to one of my favourite parts of one of my favourite films. I'm not sure how to put this on here so follow the link to see Sir Ben Kingsley singing The Wind and the Rain from Trevor Nunn's adaptation of William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.
