RAIN, GLORIOUS RAIN so much of it that our 1,000L water tanks from the guttering are all full. The recently planted trees and shrubs will be thankful and Gonzalo next door, who's been busy with his veg planting will be overjoyed. It's uncanny how he seems to get the timing just right - always rotivating and seeding before the rain. And what a deluge it was.
Now, here's August 21 birthday flower for Kathleen
and I hope she likes it. Notice I'm scanning whole pages now in case others who read this see their birthday and it'll save me more scanning. Kathleen (Kasey) seems to be a new blogger, has a range of arty-crafty interests and like many garden bloggers, is a very good photographer.
We were just moving a Poligala out of its root-bound pot to put in a permanent spot behind the new wall, next to the vine Gonzalo planted, when the heavens opened. We couldn't stop at that point and got drenched. Still, it was a good excuse to rush in afterwards, have a really hot shower, cuppa tea and relax.
