Wet autumn in the Parish of Grouville, Jersey

In 2019 we have had a consistently wet autumn with rain every day for long periods. The moisture in the air has meant the colours have been superb, their richness telling you it is just about to rain again. The Pictures below were taken immediately around our house. Home is where the heart is.

A flooded Grouville Marsh. During the occupation it was the site of a labour camp for forced workers for Organisation Todt. It was a terrible place. Now thanks to the National Trust for Jersey and the Commune the marsh has been restored , a superb hidden corner of our Island.
