Storm Ciara has been busy. And on the lane here it has had its effect. Amazingly violets and snowdrops are still flowering but some of the lesser Celandine have been battered by the flooding water as it has made its way down the lane to the main road. The mill stream full to bursting overflowed onto the lane and the crashing of the water deafening. There is now so much water that the mill pond near the top of the lane is now visible. Most of the time it doesn’t really exist but when there is a bad storm and heavy rainfall it all changes.
