Storm Hannah has Been and Gone


Saturday was rather wet.  Storm Hannah came and went, very luckily for our corner of the UK, she was not that badly behaved. Certainly wet, heavy at times but not torrential.

It was though, as they say, the prefect weather for Ducks


The rain was heavy enough to penetrate the new woodland canopy and flattened many of the Bluebells… but if anything it improved their scent!


But for the most part it was just a wet grey day, one of the very few we have had this Winter and Spring…. so best not complain – in any case we need the water.

  1. Nature loves this rain – this is the second day now with rain here. We need it badly, especially down south where I live. The water supplies are low.

    • Yep…isn’t wasn’t worth the hype for us (though some friends on the Welsh coast got some damage). Since they started naming each storm I am sure there intensity has lessened.

    • I have heard from friends on the North Wales coast and they report some damage…. so far this winter we have avoided the usual extremes of the weather. A for rain,,, well we do need some more.
