part of a poem we learnt off by heart in primary school..dorathea mackellar was right about the drought and flooding rains. after years of drought we're in a wet phase. it's nice for keeping the usually high temps down but not great for many in northern nsw and queensland where it's flooding.
just back from a quick trip to the southern highlands, my mum's place. a bit like winter with a log fire burning in the lovely old country pub where we went for dinner.
wishing i could have taken more photos with blue skies, but i found some beauty in the rain and the ducks are loving it!
have a happy weekend whatever the weather!
today i'm linked @
I love all your pictures - that lush grass looks beautiful - it's the middle of winter here, so our grass has gone dormant. Even before then, however, we've been under water restrictions, so our grass hasn't been very green lately :(ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend!
Looks like a lovely break. Such a stunning garden.ReplyDelete
Happy weeeknd to you Cheryl.
Yes I feel very sorry for many queen slanders, they must be very frustrated! But I do love the Southern Highlands. Its such a pretty place. xReplyDelete
I can't believe how all the rain is affecting Northern NSW & QLD either. I hope they get some relief very soon...ReplyDelete
Your pictures are absolutely beautiful by the way...
