Wild very wet weather.....


how wet can it get???? We have the river here up to the top of its banks and spilling over....trees falling down as the ground is sodden they just fall over....including the Buddlia here at our home....it just fell out of the ground....one minute it was standing the next it wasn't!!! We took out the swimming pool but to our surprise we have another one in its place.....we are stunned at the amount of water that has fallen lately....how can it be so dry for so long and then rain nonstop for this amount of time??? Its great for our water catchment areas....not so great for our wheat and fruit farmers....spoilt their crops....feeling sorry for them.....
Gillian took a great photo of our sunset sky the other night...the colours were incredible!!
How are your sketch entries going? I have been sent a few and will put them up on the blog tomorrow sometime so you can see them all....a winner will be posted after sometime after the closing time....most likely on Tuesday morning!! Loving what we are seeing so far....you girls make it very hard to choose a winner!!

Wow that's an aweful lot of rain!
hopefully the drought has broken now. Feel sorry for the farmers, they just can't take a trick!

just looked at the river here this morning, its up to the top of the banks so if anyone has more rain it'll prob start to overflow, hoping to get the sketch done this avo... but will have to see how time goes :)

Gosh Kathie your own duck pond :) Ok upstairs - enough already !!! It's hot and muggy here - wants to rain, tries to rain but doesn't really - just a sprinkle here and there and high humidity. YUK
