I love the rain ....

Australia is a dry country and after years of drought and trying to maintain gardens with buckets of water from the shower, we finally have rain. And plenty of it. It has been raining for close on 2 weeks. The colours of Summer have changed to a brilliant lime green and the air is clean. It is wonderful!

The temperature is also lower and for the first time ever here, I do not have to sleep in airconditioning. Imagine!

I have spent the last couple of days preparing our vegetable garden. Yes I know I am terribly late but with health issues it just has not been possible to do anything until now. What joy to stand out in the warm rain, feet in mud, planting seeds. Let's hope they germinate...



I hope all my Australian friends are safe from the floods.

Oh, yes! The fresh green of new growth is so wonderful. I have found the drought so very depressing. We are lucky to have had fine weather down here for the past week. I am so glad that you feel well enough to get out in the garden again.

I've heard you are getting lots of rain. The new green growth is refreshing! I love the layout.
