Earlier this evening, inbetween showers I went over to my allotment to pick some strawberries. I can't keep up with them, l fill a huge bowl and give some to friends. I wore my waterproof jacket a) because rain was threatening and b) because it was chilly!! This is the third year they have rewarded me with generous crops of delicious fruit. The consensus of opinion is that they are only good for three years so I will need to train some runners from them. The raspberries are looking good too, I think they will be a bumper crop. We had a lot of rain last week and various parts of the village and surrounding fields were flooded.
This bridge was picked up and swept along a couple of feet. It should be just about where that cow parsley is.
It looks a bit precarious but we're still using it. Rufus goes across with no hesitation, Buster however isn't very keen. The first time I had to put his lead on and almost drag him across but he's much better now, he hesitates for a few seconds, gingerly gets on it then runs across to safety! bless him. I'm sure it will be repaired soon.
