Throughout this very hot dry summer our Kandos garden has been stressed but the mountain garden was doing OK (it still had greenish grass). But when we returned a week or so ago I was shocked to find many of the plants suddenly in a bad state -- big trees and shrubs were going brown, had their leaves turned down or were dropping their leaves.
With tight water restrictions only allowing watering with a watering can or bucket it was going to be impractical to get around our large garden.
Then this week everything changed. The heavens opened.
And the puddles danced with joy - our prayers answered. The rain is also helping to put out the fires.
P.S. I am going to try and post to this blog and visit your blogs on Sundays.
The rain couldn't have come at a better time for you, and your area, that's wonderful news Joan.ReplyDelete
We're only getting a smattering atm, however, every bit helps and tomorrow may well be a better story :D) xx
It has certainly been great in the mountains. At Kandos we are in the "every smattering" helps a little category.Delete
The heavens opened just on time.ReplyDelete
Yes. I'm glad I don't have to fret over the trees.Delete
Great photos of the rain, just what was needed but a bit late for the flowers, but they will come good next year! We have had a small amount of rain, and every little bit helps.ReplyDelete
Agapanthus are flowering in the mountains garden ... it takes a lot for them to give up.Delete
Hallelujah Joan Elizabeth, the rain was so badly needed. . Better late than never as they say ✨ReplyDelete
As the farmers say each day is one day closer to rain. We are still waiting for that day out west but things are looking good in the mountains.Delete
So good to see the rain, I just hope our trees recover. So many of them have dropped all their leaves.ReplyDelete
None of ours dropped ALL of their leaves so I am fairly confident of recovery. I hope yours do OK.Delete
So happy for you and your garden.ReplyDelete
A damp garden is a very happy thing.Delete
There's nothing better than rain after a drought.ReplyDelete
You are so right!Delete
The puddles danced with joy... love that.ReplyDelete
Here’s to a lot more of that joy.
We are again getting good rain in the mountains. I am going to have to mow the lawn this week.Delete
