“Rain hangs about the place, like a friendly ghost. If it’s not coming down in delicate droplets, then it’s in buckets; and if neither, it tends to lurk suspiciously in the atmosphere.” ~ Barbara Acton-Bond 

SONY DSCMost of my leisurely walks are taken around water. Today I share a selection of photographs from this past week plus a short video filmed here at home a month ago to show what happens when it rains a little too much.

“Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards.” ~ Vladimir Nabokov   I think that’s good advice don’t you?

  2. Hi Sue, I loved your pictures, and your video was fascinating, (pretty blue boots), and the finale quote is great
    “Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards.” ~ as I’m looking outside and smiling at the rain falling down !!

    1. Thank you very much Ivor. So glad you like my wellies, my very old, traditional green ones sprung a leak!

      I couldn’t decide which of the two quotes to use and then I remembered something my husband used to say, “Save the best til last and always leave em with a laugh!”😂

    1. Thank you very much Ethel. It has been a very wet winter/spring. A couple of years ago the levels rose much higher and we needed sandbags around the doors at the back. The son-in-law is intending to dig a field trench that hopefully that will re-route the water away from the house.
