Why, on a day of non-stop rain, did I squelch along to the allotment? Rain pooling in every slight hollow in the soil. Everything sodden, and no-one else in sight.
This shot has come out much brighter than it actually was. We had lights on indoors all day, and by 3 o'clock daylight was fading.
The path through the trees shows it like it was.
But I needed some chard for tonight's meal, and having made up my week's menu it was somehow easier to plod out in the soaking rain than to think of an alternative. In the end, I was glad I'd done it.
