Hi all, I hope your Sunday was a sunny one :) Our day here was beautiful ending in a gorgeous evening!
I have a card to share and then some photos of how things look here after 142mm of rain!
Some of you may know that some towns north of where I live are in flood and are waiting for the waters to subside after huge rain falls over a week ago. We had something like 142mm here, less than half of what some experienced, and the up side for us is that our tanks are full and the flowers and grass look amazing, so even though some are experiencing devastating circumstances I thought it might be nice to look at a positive.
These beautiful flowers are known by a few different names, but one is rain lillies (zephyranthes), and after such rains as we had they just flourish!
I put these gorgeous bulbs in because I'd read they need very looking after, my sort of plant!
They stretch (almost) right across the front of the house, I just need to plant a few more!
This is our little orchard and overflow dam which was nearly empty before the rain! It all looks amazing because Chris spent over 6 hours yesterday mowing(mainly because he wanted to go on his motorbike today!)! He's a treasure lol! Even the paddocks look green beneath the over growth, they just look amazing!
Hope you liked this little tour of our neighbourhood! I should've included one of the neighbours cows...I talk to them when I'm out there alone...I'm sure there's nothing too much to be worried about lol!!
Have a great Labour Day tomorrow those in Victoria. If you're in Melbourne I hope you get to enjoy the Moomba Parade!!
Hugs for now,
