In Britain’s Green and Pleasant Land

Wet field 30.1.13 resized

If any of you out there wondered how Britain got to be so green there’s a clue in the picture above.  IT NEVER STOPS RAINING, (or snowing, or snowing and raining or sleeting or spitting or mizzling or drizzling or showering or pouring or ……. you get the picture).  Anyway, we’re very wet and have been for months and months.  Recently we were very cold and wet and now we’re just a bit cold and wet.  The only way we know when summer has arrived is the rain is warmer.

I love it really but it’s expected that we should moan about the weather so there it is.

    Hello from another small island. We know all about that here – incessant rain! Lovely picture and I’m glad I’ve found you. 🙂

    What about smirring? Or is that reserved for Scotland? 🙂

    Very cool post. Down here in the south-west we get slush-hail, a combination of sleet and hail, instead of snow… and sometimes instead of rain 🙂

    This is a beautiful picture. I don’t know much about UK because I’m from Australia 😀 but one day when I’m a bit older I would love to travel.

    P.s I LOVE the rain 🙂 it makes me feel happy.

    Yeah, all the fields around here are starting to resemble ponds 😦 its actually a bit scary how much rain theres been – even for us Brits it seems never ending.
    Glad I stumbled across your blog today 🙂

      Thank you for dropping by. It is a staggering amount of rain even for the UK. It has just gone on and on. I hope this spring we see some sun as the wildlife, insects and crops are really going to suffer.
