Under Water

20130820 042After the heavy rainfall this year, the edge of the property on the eastern boundary is under water for the first time since we moved here 4 years ago.    It is essentially a flood plain and is doing its job. We had double the average rainfall in May and that early inundation set the scene for winter.  June only had half the average, July was slightly above average and it looks like August will be too. The horses seem to be enjoying it and often stand in the water eating or just splashing around.
