At last, the rain has come, and come and come!
So far we have had 16 hours of heavy, non stop rain. Some large areas of the back garden have standing water covering the gravel. I am not sure the newly planted gooseberry will be impressed as it may be in a mini sump!
The pond has filled up and being on a slight slope, gently overflows when full, so it is hard to gauge just how much rain we have had so far.
We reckon not less that 4" and probably nearer 6" as a previously empty jug I use for watering small plants is full!
Forecasts estimate another 4 hours of heavy rain still to come.
