Such a difference in the weather from yesterday. It must have been raining quite a while through the night as the duckpond is forming on the kitchen patio which means the water table is high already so the soakaway is not soaking away. Still raining steadily and very dark - all the houses have their lights on. I think it is time to freeze the huge pile of Bramleys I have in the kitchen today. Certainly no need to water anything in the garden and the depleted waterbutts will be filling up again. It is still mild too and calm, no sign of wind yet to bring down the leaves.
