I'm desperate about the floods in my garden. Every border is full to the lawn level, walking on the lawn is like walking on a bowl of blancmange. (Not that I've ever done that you understand!) Also there's puddles of standing water on parts of the lawn, so that I can't even do anything out there. Although we are at the top of a hill, the hill is made up of London clay. Great for holding the moisture in the summer but disastrous after so much rain, with more to come. I know I'm not as unfortunate as those folks in Somerset, but I really don't want to lose all my lovely plants.
