Flooding

image


There was quite a bit of rain earlier this week so I was interested yesterday to see that there had been some flooding in Chertsey.

Fortunately the river has only flooded into this channel/concourse. Unfortunately someone from Surrey County Council planted a tree in it. Then again I’m sure the tree will live.

And probably thrive with all the water.

Yes the tree should thrive, but if the groundwater is shallow here at the stream the tree’s roots might not grow deep.

I don’t know. I have a habit of collecting avocado pear pips, sticking toothpicks in them and then suspending them over a jar of water so that they will grow.

Sometimes they do quite well. Other times they die for no apparent reason than “too much water”.
