@Aquarelle - If the avatar is your dog then she's gorgeous! Ours is a small collie size. We live next to a bridle path and fields so I understand the mud! You wouldn't think that fields could get *that* muddy! I hope you get some sun soon and a nice wind!!!
It rose to 4.4C overnight and is now 1.6C. Absolutely beautiful light here!!!
No Zixi, my avatar is my previous dog whom I loved to bits and only had for 2 years as she came to me from the vet who was seeking to find her a home and she was already elderly and unwell. Mattie was a standard poodle. The one I have now is a toy poodle and she is grey, not apricot as Mattie was. I love her to bits too.
So you too know about country life and the effect the rain has on it! I must say I notice the weather a lot more here than when we lived in London. Today it has - of course - rained most of the time! However the forecast for tomorrow is brighter.
