Raining Cats and Dogs

Real rain and more rain. Last Friday and Saturday we had 89 ml in 36hrs 3.6 inches in the old measurement. The paddocks were flooded and water poured into the dam - not that it's very deep these days, but it is nearly full.
Earlier in the week, Mark and the two dogs had a great time stacking the old willow stumps and burning them. The dogs spent a lot of their time in the mud of the dam and came in very dirty.

The dogs had a wonderful time. Ollie has a fixation with fires and sticks his nose into every nook and cranny trying to pick up burning embers. Alfie looks on from a distance. He's a bit timid about anything scary.

Meanwhile there is colour in the garden. Some of the salvias are looking very pretty at the moment - maybe because of the mild autumn.

The citrus are ripening nicely and add another colour to the spectrum

Meyer Lemon
Tahitian Lime

The windflowers continue to put on a show

And my first Oriental poppy is a stunner.

I do like Autumn!!!
