Raging River

We had some fairly heavy rainfall yesterday and the little trickly burn at the bottom of our garden turned into a raging river!

Here’s a photo of our burn taken last month – you can just about make out a little trickling burn by the yellow flowers:


And a video taken yesterday:

I’m glad we decided to put a nice solid fence between our Beaglets and the burn!

I had planned to plant lots of wildflowers along the bank of the burn. I wonder if they’ll survive flooding like this? It doesn’t happen often and the water drains away very quickly when the rain stops. I’ve also got a ton of bulbs to plan at the bottom of the garden inside the fence but I’m wondering how they’ll cope with occasional flooding. Back to the drawing board!
