THE DROUGHT HAS BROKEN !!!
OK, so, technically, we weren’t really in ‘drought’, just Perth’s normal no-rain Summer, but we actually officially recorded ‘rain’ for 5 days in a row!! – Unheard of! (in recent times) 🙂
Sure, the TOTAL over those 5 days came to just 6.4 mm or just under 1/4 of one inch, but it got the ground damp which was all i could hope for after this Summer. Since the Evaporation Rate over the same 5 day period was 20.2 mm there is certainly not going to be any net gain to our dam storage, but at least my plants, lawn and flowers got some relief!
I caught these two small begonia flowers soaking up a drop or two. 🙂
