It's Still Raining!!!

and we are just so excited!
I hear that the powers that be will release Wivenhoe Dam tonight, followed up by the secondary dam tomorrow night, thanks to the lovely Cyclone who is heading our way over this weekend - not as a full cyclone, but pretty wet and wild none-the-less. They say we can expect between 200 and 300 mm tomorrow and Sunday.

To prove what I say I have taken some wonderful wet pictures:

See, the garden is growing massively!

And here is water on the hut floor!

The whole garden is a joy to behold at the moment, with all the showers the flowers are all trying to outdo one another!

My cuttings are about to burst out of their pots! That coriander in the bottom right hand pot, was next to dead 2 days ago - it has loved the real rain!

Thank you Diane, I'm sure that your wishes were the reason for all this water - at this point I scream "Thank you, thank you"!!

I may not feel this way for long though, once the dam is released!!!

Your garden looks great and I am glad you are safe. We have had 4 days of rain, and thankfully we live on a hill. No power or phones last night and our hearts go out those who have been flooded.

Cheers Pauline
