|The bench , trees and lamp show where the bank usually is.|
I seem to have had one of those weeks where I haven't really felt like doing much, and curling up with a book seemed much the best option to pass the time, so I haven't got round to writing anything for several days. But I stirred myself into activity this morning, wrapped up warmly in my new winter coat (an early Christmas pressie from my wonderful daughters) and was out bright and early - by which I mean I was bright, but the weather wasn't. It wasn't raining, but it was very dull and foggy, although it cleared by the time I walked down to the Castle Grounds to look at the floods. The light wasn't good, but I've taken some pictures for this week's Saturday Snapshot to give you an idea what it looked like.
|This shot, taken from a bridge, gives some idea of the extent|
of the flooding.
|This beautiful flowers were growing on the unsubmerged part of the |
bank, and brought a welcome touch of colour to a bleak day.
|This may look like a river, or pool...|
|....but it's really a footpath!|
|Trees growing in the water!|
|This is grassland - honestly - and normally you can walk|
across it without wearing wellies!
