No mud to weigh you down, Chris...
Chris: This was taken after many months of drought Ray. Luckily springtime had been wet, so the trees didn't suffer..
It must be odd for you to see...
Chris: Given this damp country, certainly Elizabeth..

Oh, I see - but there is still much green and some cows and sheep are grazing. Only the wine and fruit farmers here are happy to have had such a warm summer.
Chris: Those who grow grapes here in the UK are similarly delighted with the crops this year Philine. Mother Nature has been bountiful for all persons associated with wine production
La sécheresse est bien là  mais la photo est très belle , Merci Chris
Chris: Yes indeed Claudine, the countryside still looks good

I'm hoping never to experience such appalling weather again in my remaining years. October is proving to be a crazy month, too; today we will be basking in sun and around 22 deg.
Chris: As the moment of writing this the rain is CHUCKING IT DOWN outside my windows..
It seems to be making up for it now. A damp grey morning in the capital of culture that is Droitwich
Chris: Ghastly rain here in the Lantern of the West this morning. Take all waterproofs to the SVR today. You will probably need 'em!

I have noticed that some areas are taking a long time to green up again
Chris: Which shows us how profound the drought was Lisl

Tomorrow's forecast now shows heavy rain for Castle Combe - be prepared!
Lovely rolling landscape...
Chris: Thank you Larry, glad you like it
Lovely outlook from up there, no doubt as nice whatever the weather. WE've had wind and rain overnight and this morning, the sun is now out but the wind persists!!
Chris: Raining on and off here in Bath today Brian
This could be here, Chris with the dryness. We have wonderfully coloured leaves at the moment.
Chris: Thank you Mary

You know that I love chalkland landscapes.
Chris: I'm sure you do

I wouldn't exactly call this chalkland though..
