Above are pictures from Sunday and Monday. It's been almost constantly drizzling since Saturday. Just enough rain to make it cool and pleasant, and create a tiny bit of mud. It also overflowed the tank, which is good.
But last night, ah, last night we got proper rain! It bucketed. 78mms to be exact. And it was still raining this morning. We got another 10mm within half an hour, and now that has come up to 30mm. And it's raining still.
I'm so glad of this rain. After a bad season last year, we really need some decent rain this season. And I'm hoping that that might just be happening.
It's rained so much that waterfalls have appeared on the mountains. They look so pretty. Our dam has overflowed a lot, too, with more water still pouring into it and out of it. It's cut us off from the Bull's paddock, so we'll have to walk around the long way to check on them.
We've also got a Border Collie sized swimming pool in the corner of the yard. Rilla is in heaven. So am I. She'll be entertained for most of the day, leaving me free to take advantage of the cool weather with some knitting and quilting, in between swapping the washing from the machine into the dryer.
And here are the pictures of the dam overflow. Some of them are of what's going in to it, and others are of the crossing into the Bull's paddock, where excess water comes out of the dam. .
What's the weather like in your patch at the moment? I hope it's to your liking!
ps thank-you all so very much for your wonderful comments and welcome to all my lovely new followers! I'll visit you all, I promise, but life is so busy at the moment that I'm a little slow in coming around. I hope this is okay, x
