“Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard.”
― Anne Sexton

More water! Readers, you shouldn’t even pretend to be surprised anymore. But I made the most of my trek to Winchester today to snap some of the floods along the way. It’s a great use of a lunch break! Much of Winchester is battling the floods, especially in the town centre and the main route in. Pumps are working around the clock to try and clear things up a bit.



So we had a day of sunshine. It was refreshing, almost like a Summers day. Fruit and Salad for lunch even felt natural for once!  It was beautiful. I had to go down to the meadow to take a few snaps of the reflection in the water. I love that the evenings are lighter and I can finish work and still get a couple of minutes of daylight.




So there we have it, an almost Summer day. As I write this (it’s 18:20), the hailstones are just tapping on the window and snow warnings are in force for tomorrow. Ah well, 8 hours of sunshine is better than none!

I know I know, more water photographs. It has become something of a novelty around here and if we were suffering as much as Somerset I definitely wouldn’t be sat here blogging! Overnight the winds were incredible but luckily the rain has stayed away and the day has been mostly dry.




I encouraged William to invest in some Wellies so that we could explore a bit more of the meadow – and the floods just down the road. Cars were starting to think twice before going through them this time!




As we waded through knee deep river that had spilled over onto the meadow, I spotted some Ladybirds floating downstream and clinging to bits of branch. We rescued the few that we could! It was quite bizarre though, there were around 20 little ladybirds perishing in the flood water.

Buddy again enjoyed himself immensely, and I’m hoping the deluge of photographs will make up for a busy week! Tomorrow I have some estate agents to photograph (I know, never thought I would be doing that!) and this week I have lots of work to catch up on after missing a few days due to training the past few weeks. Then the uni work will need some attention again soon as I crack on with the last few assignments and the final batches of revision notes. Photos will continue – but they may be last minute!
