Great weather for ducks......


Even though it's been raining (a lot) for almost a week now, we still like to do our regular walks. I'm pictured here  (rainbow umbrella)  with Cilla (on right) and her border collie Billy (behind Dash). The dogs really look forward to going (even in the rain) and get quite excited if they spot a hare, brush turkey or a wallaby.

 According to the weather bureau, the weekly rainfall tally is 297mm but we have had more since that reading was taken. So it is kinda sqishy underfoot. When we started out it was quite foggy, and feeling quite 'wintery'.


I just love all of these lichens growing along this fence. They seemed to be only growing along the bottom rail.
The weekend's forecast is for more rain.......
Good weather too, for sewing  :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
Cheerio,

It looks so green! I wish it was constantly raiing here, it's only overcast and humid, with smal showers here and there. Poor Roma and Charlieville! Hope we can help them out somehow. You know that 80% of our state is now flooded?! My that's alot!
Love the moss on the fence! Dash looks so happy! How old is she?

Hi Sandi,
It may be wet where you are, but it doesn't look that cold. Our dogs love their walks, but they can't wait to get back inside if it's pouring down.
I've been thinking I will miss the cold and the darkness of winter because as you say, it's great for sewing.

I just can't wait to have all the wonderful green around here! I don't mind about the rain either!
