Alien burnouts  
Crop circles I could deal with, but no; aliens have to do burnouts in my backyard. God knows what brought them here.
I've lived here for nearly eight years but it's only been since the start of this summer that these tracks in my lawn have become obvious. Neighbours tell me that the tracks mark the location of drainage ditches that the previous owners dug. Whatever, they just look weird.

I know it's been raining really, really hard there but is your lawn actually underwater? It looks like there's a reflection in it.

Of course my first reaction was "how cool is that!" but then, y'know... *g*

Naw, what looks like reflection is actually rain droplets on the camera lens.
Having said that, when I went outside this morning in between showers I discovered that the bottom corner of my yard (top centre of the photo) is waterlogged. Surprising, because the soil is really sandy and water usually runs away quite quickly.

That does look weird. I they are supposed to be drainage ditches, it doesn't look as if they are doing a very good job. That is water over the lawn isn't it?

I told you ages ago to stop doing the rain dance. *g* I'm very fed up with this wet weather and grey skies.

As I just mentioned to Drayce above, it was rain drops on the camera lens that made the lawn look as though it was under water. But if we get too much more it could become a possibility....
I have mushrooms popping up all through the gardens now. We need the rain, but perhaps in smaller doses *g*
