Mixed bag as far as the weather goes but predominantly hot. The garden here is loving and the grass is growing faster than Tim or I can keep up. It's great to not be worrying about water for one summer at least. The rain is quite hit and miss though and we are lucky this time.
The rain is mostly coming in storms. Quite nasty storms actually. The cat hides under the bed, the chooks take cover and the ducks just think it's fabulous. We had 24mm of rain on Wednesday afternoon and 49mm on Friday. Lots of wind and thunder and lightning and tree limbs down all over the place.
As I said, it is doing wonders for the gardens. Flowers galore.
Roses still have blooms here and there but they are fading now. I think my roses are a bit wimpy and things have to be just right.
It's a small window of opportunity when moisture, sunshine and temperature are in perfect balance and they say ok, we'll put on a show... today only. 😕🌹
It's not all gardening and working. It never is. It's the last throes of the school holidays so that means we have the country music festival. Surprisingly it wasn't too busy yesterday. I'm glad.
