Rain Rain Rain

We have had record breaking rain this week , after 2 years of drought, and we have been lucky not to have flood damage like some hills towns. The garden is a little slower to bloom this year as it is wetter and cooler.

Spring posy from the garden

Dark moody wet day

Buddleia in full flower

The lawn is to wet and boggy to mow this week

Saturday country drive and some wonderful scenery

 Having a good scratch!

Linking up with Shabby Art Boutique this week


  1. Oh how beautiful everything is there. You would not know that you are in drought. Here in So CA we are into our 5th year of drought. I have lots so many beautiful rose bushes and the roses that do bloom are so little. We can now water three times a week, no washing down the driveway's cars, etc. I certainly hope this winter will get a lot of rain.

    Your flowers are beautiful and grass so green, our's is brown.

    the girls look like they are enjoying laying in the cool grass.

    Love your posts Meg and have a wonderful week.


  2. Wonderful to know that you have rain but no floods. The girls certainly seem to be enjoying it, amazing.

  3. Lovely to see your beautiful flowers, the summer here has passed and it is getting a lot colour, time to think about planting the Spring Bulbs.

  4. Stunning photos! I am happy your beautiful place skipped flooding.

  5. Your photos are calendar worthy! Stunning!

  6. Jetzt wird es bei uns langsam Zeit, an Frühlingszwiebel zu denken und sie einzupflanzen.
    Du kannst deinen wundervollen Frühlingsstrauß jetzt schon genießen.
    Beeindruckende Wolkenbilder hast du fotografiert und eure wunderschöne Landschaft.
    Gott sei Dank, seid ihr von Überschwemmungen verschont geblieben.
    Wünsche dir eine feine Woche,alles Liebe,

  7. Lovely and scenic and a peaceful landscape. You are blessed.

  8. Meg, I was hoping that river nearby didn't cause you any damage. By the way, do you use the Panorama option on your camera? I have given it a try but with no success so far. I will have to practise more.

  9. I always love to see your landscape photos, it's such a wonderful place on earth. Glad you had rain, a good start of spring. Love to watch your lazy girls and the kangeroo that's something special for us.

  10. Your girls are so funny laying in the grass! They make me smile every time I see them! Big lumps of feathers and red "crowns".

  11. <3! What a beautiful spring. I hope the wet continues, though not too much.

    1. It's still coming down...a record breaking season!

  12. As always Meg, your spring garden is looking fabulous. Hasn't our weather been strange of late. Hope you were okay in this weeks black out. I'm delighted to be featuring your garden at tomorrow's Shabbilicious Friday party.
    Hugs ~ Kerryanne

  27. "Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog like yours take a large amount of work?
    I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary
    daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations
    or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!"



I love to hear from you and appreciate your messages. Meg xx
