You can see the NW bed is waterlogged now, too. Bloody hell.
And below, that's looking South. Pond at maximum extent. On the plus side, if you follow the canal up the middle of the photo, you can see where I managed to get a start on relaying the path at the weekend, even though it's veering off slightly West.
So it was all a bit depressing, compounded by the lack of endorphins I usually get after a couple of hours hard labour, lost to the flooding and the ceaseless downpour. But, you know, this is January still, and, anyway, I'm in this for the foreseeable future, it's not as if everything hangs on the growing season for this year, we're not going to starve. And things will look better as the days lengthen and the weather improves...
