Well, this weekend sees the end of daylight savings and those lovely balmy evenings sitting outside watching the birds put themselves to bed. The mornings are already getting darker and waking up at 7 is becoming more and more difficult - for some reason getting up in the dark no matter what the time , is so much less inviting than waking up to a soft bright dawn light.
But, with the colder weather and shorter days comes the rain - and that is very welcome. Good rain last week and more to come tomorrow - Thank Goodness!! We got our Summer water bill last week and it was horrific!! I must ring someone for a quote on installing more rainwater tanks and for cleaning out the dam and putting in a pump.
We've been working a lot in the garden this last week after the rain, tidying up, weeding, doing the garden edges and spreading bark chips. Mark has been out in the veggie garden and between Don and Mark we have had great saving in vegetables this summer.
