There has been no rain whatsoever in April in the IoW and it’s starting to show.
Not many places look like this photo – Turf Walk is this way because the council dug it up to put wire mesh under the grass and then put soil back on top. Then it didn’t rain for a month and all the clay cracked.
The purpose was (I think) to stop the badgers from digging giant holes in the middle. However, they’ve now dug giant holes under the park benches and the grass is as you see.
