I love the rain. I especially love the garden after the rain. The smell of damp soil, mulch and grass, the fresh, cool air to breathe in, walking in bare feet through water puddles on the deck and the crunch of feel of the spiky grass underfoot in the backyard.
Here's a look around the garden after the final storm for the day.
|Our little red wagon|
|Freshly fallen gum leaves, still vibrant|
|Literally buckets of water|
|Escallonias, mint, brachyscome and a vibrant coloured daisy|
|I love the colours of this gum tree after the rain.|
|The last of the three storms passing|
|Master 4's building site was completely flooded|
|The hydrangeas have begun flowering again in time for Christmas|
|Delicate seaside daisies enjoying the rain|
|The children's watering cans ready for tomorrow|
|New growth on the magnolia|
|The jacaranda and the gumtrees|
