After an exceptionally long winter all we have been seeing for weather this spring is rain. Rain showers, rain storms ,rain drizzle, rain puddles! We have had days on end of rain as have many places on this side of the world. Flooding is occurring everywhere. Many areas have had to have a controlled flood area with hundreds of homes lost in order to save larger areas and more homes. The weather is colder than usual by at least 10 degrees. Home heating companies have made a killing this year as the cool weather never seems to end. My yard is over saturated with water. It can't absorb any more water and as we are on a septic system it has overflowed twice already. After a walk in my back yard a few minutes ago I am very worried this may happen again. With out a doubt the coldest, wettest spring I can remember in many, many years. These are pics from my back yard.
