gosh we have had some rain over the past week or so. It's been more of an April deluge than April showers
There have been extra water hazards on the golf course.
Mud baths on the footpaths
and others have turned from paths to streams.
Not to mention the pools in the paddocks.
At least puddles on tarmac give you the chance to wash some of the mud off.
As my Dad would have said...."It's lovely weather for Ducks", or in this case geese.
Mum and I were out trying to make the best of the day last Wednesday. It was a mild day and I enjoyed a wander round a pretty village while mum sat in the car to do a sketch.
The stream was quiet full and raindrops landed on my camera lens.
This stream between houses was babbling away.
I do love a cute cottage with a pretty garden.
and the Willow trees just coming into leaf were a happy sight.
That's what I need...a big brolly....and maybe a little dog :0)
I liked this red brick house.
With it's pink tree...love pink trees.
And I loved this thatched cottage.
With it's stream-side setting.
I enjoyed wandering about in this idyllic spot, despite the rainy weather
Getting wet taking pictures of water.
Eventually though I had to retreat to the cover of our "tin overcoat"...another of my lovely late Dad's expressions :0)
This is what mum sketched while I was away. I really love how this turned out mum♥
