Four days of continuous rainfall, water standing ankle-deep, I'm beginning to think a pair of webbed-feet would be fitting.
It's difficult to achieve any outdoor chores in inclement weather like this, unless of course you are fortunate to own a sturdy Mackintosh, wellington boots, and a large rain hat.
Luckily the temperatures are mild for this time of the year, just yesterday a new Geranium bloom appeared, even after several hard frosts earlier in the month.
Mother Nature seems to have her months all higgledy piggledy.
Row, row, row your boat......
" The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain.
This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you'd just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency. "
