When the river finally flooded the meadow I usually take my photos at, my first thought was: A chance to show off my wellies!

I bought them at Glasto after the pair I arrived in developed leaks that gaffa tape alone could not fix.  I've been getting plenty of wear out of them over these last few splashy months.

Some boys were getting a real kick out of riding their bikes through the impromptu lake, while a little girl was equally fascinated with the myriad dead earthworms, moving like reeds in the water.

I might be all grown up, but I took a few extra photos just so I could splash through the water just a little longer myself.

Luckily there isn't an awful lot of flooding in the area. Just the wet lands around the river, rather than residential areas. So I don't have to feel guilty for enjoying the flood quite this much. That's forgetting about the unlucky earthworms of course.. ;)

See you later in the week, have a good one!

    This sounds odd, but I loved flooded meadows.  Well, I love meadows in general, but when I was little, I had a lot of fun in a nearby meadow when it flooded.  So, yeah, fond memories.


  2. Around here, we dig for earthworms to use as fish bait.  And that's quite a big puddle for your Wellies.

  3. Good to hear there isn't a lot of flooding there.  Those are not always too fun. . .although I must admit that living in floods every single year, some of the small ones are fun. 

    Love these shots. You look like you had so much fun taking them!
