I love the winter color of willows. This location is usually dry save for a stream running through the back of the willows, but we have had so much rain that the willows and the field beside it are flooded. The field is below:
The photo above is of the flooded field beside the willows. This is a corn field in summer. At this time it is another swimming hole for ducks.
The green areas are of the Somenos dike which was built to hold back the water when the field floods. Previous to the building of the dike, there was flooding of houses in this area when heavy rains prevailed. In December of 2018 this area saw many days of heavy rain. I wonder how much more rain we will have this winter.
