Water Olympics

 Nothing as bad as others in the UK, I just have to put up with not being able to walk on the grass or go anywhere near my veggie garden until the water goes.  It has been months now.
 Flooding will leach nutrients from the soil, and prolonged flooding for months like this won't be good for the earthworms either.
Leo doesn't mind at all, paddles around and explores as usual.

I think "Water Features" may fall out of favour for a while this year..!

Oh dear! I feel for you. Thankfully ours isn't so bad but it's to wet to have dug it over so things are going to be late this year which is a shame as we finished our runner beans and potatoes up last week!

Though we have had less rain than you my lawn is permanently soggy. I just hope the land doesn't dry out so fast it goes rock solid.
