This is how the weather has been all day today, typical Victorian spring day. I'm thankful that we don't live in Sydney and didn't have to put up with the dust storm. We spent several years living in Ouyen when the kids were little and dust storms were the norm for summer. I can vividly remember having to madly run around bringing nappies off the clothes line because a dust storm was coming. If you left them out, they would be red and gritty and have to be washed again, that wasn't always an option if water was scarce!!
Anyway, this is how it's been today, sun, rain, wind - wind, sun, rain - all day. It's quite cool today too, right now it's 10 degrees C on my verandah.
But just look how green it is!!!!!!!!! So far this September, we (here in my rain gauge) have had 85mm, for the whole of September last year we had 43mm. Just about double, and we have a week of rain forecast - yippee!!
Look at my poor pink daffodils though, bowing there little heads with the weight of all the rain.
The rain isn't really affecting my gorgeous Crab Apple, it's just sucking up all that wonderful moisture and showing off it's beautiful rain washed petals..........
......and being touched by a rainbow..........
Now the rain is back again, so I'm off to make a delicious cheese and cherry tomato pasta for dinner, yum, makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
