Silent Sunday: Waterlogged UK

I mentioned that the UK was wet and wild when we visited over the holidays. You’ll have heard that the country is suffering from flooding at the moment, and my parents’ garden was no exception. You can just see Santa, with his head barely above water, and the reindeer is clearly swimming for his life..

Dad's lawn turned into a lake, thanks to the river at the bottom of the garden

    That looks awful, Marianne, all the work they have put in. What a shame. Hope it didn’t get into the house.

    • I know, it’s such a shame. It floods a couple of times a year, and fortunately, has never got into the house. Leaves a big mess to clear up and when the water rises higher than the fish pond wall, the fish make a break for it…

  2. Wow, that is really bad. I hope your mum’s beautiful garden is not too badly affected in the long term. It is a bit boggy round here, but nothing like that…
