We walked in a different direction yesterday the dogs and I, we had to check that the track was passable for Lovely Hubby to return safely from work in his little car, otherwise I would have been doing a rescue mission in the 4 x 4. Luckily the drainage ditches were working well, it would have been terrible if they hadn't, they had grown at least 4 feet wider than usual with with sheer wolume of water.
What was almost impassable in the cold light of the morning (when my camera wasn't working) was glorious in the afternoon sunshine. It looked like we had a river flowing through the farm. The sunlight bounced off the deep water, and the once rushing flow had subsided to a gentle meander down to the lower fields.
~ As the water subsided the dogs found much to sniff at, little creatures that had sought shelter from the raging torrent of the ditch earlier in the day, were rooted out and sent packing to safer areas.
This morning we have woken to completely different conditions with the fields white in a covering of heavy frost, oh well back to the buckets of hot water for the animals.
Have a lovely day....whatever your weather.
