Unsolicited water feature

Filed under: Greenhouse,Progress — Helen @ 12:25 pm

After all the snow, the Met Office offered us some more snow, but we turned it down and had rain instead. A huge amount of rain. I had expected it to wash away all the snow, but it didn’t. There is still some left around the place, but not in my back garden. Thanks to the rain, I now have an interesting water feature:

We had some strong winds on Monday night and Tuesday morning. They were forecast well in advance and I shoved some extra buckets of soil and bits of rubble next to the posts. Fortunately the winds were easterly, or northeasterly and the fence stayed up. With luck, the fence only now has to manage to stay upright until 22 February, when the base is due to be laid and the trench can be filled in again. However, I don’t know how far behind the landscapers are with their other jobs after the snow.
