Flowers in the Rain

Like many parts of Australia, we have had unrelenting rain for the last 3 days. At this point, the ground seems saturated and the water is just running off the earth in torrents. Regions in North West NSW are being evacuated and are facing major flooding.

These photos were taken this afternoon in our mostly Australian Native Garden

  9. Your Leptospermin is looking great. Lovely raindrops, especially off the rose buds and twigs. The flooding is try disheartening.

  19. Your rain drenched bloom shots are lovely. I think most of southern Queensland is now very weary of the rain. Hopefully you will get a break from it soon.
