Another moist and misty morning

It has been raining almost every day for over a month now. Fiona and I were away for quite a bit of it experiencing crisp cold snow days. When I walked Treehaven Way this morning I met one of the regular walkers and she said "I'm just over it now." She and her dogs did not look like they were enjoying the misty morning.

Still it is a good time for fungi and seed pods - they are beginning to pop up in all shapes and sizes.

The valley was totally whited out this morning.  On Monday it was shrouded in cloud - lots of clod puddles amongst the trees.

I guess if the rain ceases it won't be too long before we are complaining about needing water for the tanks and plants - we can be fickle.
