We take the country road to work, but over the past few months with all the rain we have been having it has been liable to flood, and we have had to take the main road instead.
When it has been passable the views from the car when the sun has shone have been quite spectacular so on my day off I had to come back and capture them!
The chalk stream, known locally as a Winterbourne is generally dry in summer but has now flooded the neighbouring meadows too.
This lake is not usually quite this large -the coloured dogwoods always look good against the water.
I spotted the first winter aconites coming into bud and also snowdrops.
Do you have a regular journey that has some highlights along the way?
Welcome to my new followers Animal Print Gal from ATiger in your engine , Julie, Jennifer, Olympia and Christine thank you for joining me.
Thank you also for your concerns expressed in my last post about the "oiled" seabirds they have discovered the substance was an additive used to improve the performance of oil. Despite identifying the shipping that was in the area at the time they have been unable to find the culprit.
Wishing you a good weekend.
