Storm Ciara

Sunday, February 9th 2020

Storm Ciara arrived at Foxglove.  Yesterday the lake was lying calm, surrounded by winter colours, with blue sky and white clouds reflected on the surface.

Today was totally different.  The brown flood waters were rushing over the whole of the weir.  If you look closely you can see that the water had actually been high enough to come over the path.

Saturday saw the cascading ponds gently 'cascading',

but today it was a totally different picture.

The ponds were certainly not quiet as the water thundered over the dams.
