So we got some rain. Finally. And in a week the paddocks and hills have flushed green. The lawn is lush again (except where I sprayed some weeds, and killed the grass in the process, as J points out). It’s like a weight has lifted.
It’s hot again, too. I thought we might get an evening storm to suck the heat from the air, but all we ended up with was gusting wind, and cloud promises.
