RAIN! IT RAINED LAST NIGHT!.
It is like a bird feast in our backyard this morning, the red flowering gum is in bloom and the rainbow lorikeets and other birds have arrived. (this is a pink flowering gum, photo from flicker)
The ground is wet from overnight rain, the veggies are thriving with this lovely warm weather.
We have basil and spinach, tarragon and chervil, we have turnips and chillies, we have curry leaves and tomatoes, we have edible chrysanthenums and baby capsicums, we have passionfruit and mint, we have the best garlic I have ever tasted, we have parsley and shiso, we have lemons and chives, we have lemon verbena and lemon myrtle leaves, we have lemon grass and tulsi, we have nettles and comfry, we have horseradish and purple congo potatoes, we have miners lettuce and wild rocket and lots more in the garden.
The weather forecast for the next week is just lovely sunny days about 26 F, no heat waves yet.
Well they call Australia the lucky country and for us gardeners we certainly have lovely weather this week.
