We have been having alot of tropical type rain recently and it has sent the garden into overdrive, which means there is plenty of weeding and pruning to be done.
The Lavender is in full flower and fortunately hasn't been flattened by the storms.
The Wisteria is sending out tendrils, which, if you stand still for too long, threaten to envelope you!
With the rain comes flooding and it's amazing to see nearby rivers and creeks overflowing. I mean this is December, quite unusual.
As I was reminded by my BIL (brother in law) this was pretty much normal weather back in the 70's.
He is a few years older than me, but I do remember quite a few major floods back then, in the Winter time not Summer!
The first Dahlia of Summer, alot brighter in colour than the photo shows.
Last year they never flowered at all, so it's nice to see a few buds.
With the warmer weather a certain four legged, furry person spends alot of time doing the above.
Doesn't seem to matter where he is, he can close his eyes and be oblivious to the noise and commotion going on around him.
Wish I had that ability.....
Well, that's just a little bit of what's been happening in my corner of the globe.
Sewing and gardening are almost getting equal time at the moment!!!
This week I shall be trying to stay cool as the temps. rise, but there is more rain forecast as well......
Windows need cleaning too, so that can wait for a nice cool day.
Might rope No 1 in to help, certainly handy to have a 6' high fella around to reach those corners you can't.....
I'm sure he'll be more than happy to help out !!
Well, wherever you are and whatever the weather, look after yourself and thanks for stopping by for a visit.
Big thanks to all those that leave a comment, always lovely to hear from you and what's going on in your corner of the globe.
Till next time, take care,
