Rain, rain

Wild weather here, rain and wind....

Part of the fence in the back garden is trying to blow over at the moment.  What is really needed is the digging of a nice big hole and putting in more concrete, but that will have to wait until the rain stops and things dry out just a bit.  And that doesn't seem as if it will be happening any time soon, so we've got the fence braced with a piece of 2 by 4.  Not ideal, but it works.

It is interesting weather for walking though, very mild despite the wind and rain.  And you know what they say - there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.  Right now, woollen handknits are definitely appropriate.  (Also good boots, and waterproof jackets of course.)

The fields are pretty wet but we've seen it worse than this over the last couple of months.  And when the sun comes out, the light at this time of year is lovely.

That's my other half and Jess, the other day, when we were out walking over the fields.

Still knitting here, of course.  I must take some pictures of Periwinkle, at this rate I shall have it finished before it gets anywhere near the camera....
