Flooded again - it can rain

Well for those of you that are newish to my blog you may think I live in a wet area..............WRONG just go back to here and here and you can see this time last year things were getting very dry.................but since it has started to rain again we are on our second flood in 2 months - very unusual but they always say "a drought always ends with a flood" gosh I hope they are right............

We are flooded again and thankfully not as bad as the last.......................don't think I will ever see that again in my life time....................in the last flood just before Christmas all this was covered in water...........there is grass everywhere...........the stock are looking good.....what more can a girl ask for............

Today was supposed to be the second day back at school but with more rain last night we stayed home...........didn't need to get bogged..........

This morning the kids played in some shallow drains trying to catch yabbies but this afternoon dh took the boat upstream and they floated down the creek..........they had so much fun..........I was the motor bike taxi so I took the camera along.............enjoy..........

odd bit of a gum tree........dh says it looks like a dog????

we have some amazing gums in the creek................I love them.........

the crossing...........

I know I said I would show a pic of my sewing progress tonight but we got carried away out at the creek and it was a bit late for a photo so maybe tomorrow but I did do some playing........

and for some amazing sunset pics go here..............

Goodnight till next time...........

  5. Stunning pictures again Donna. The earth must be very dry, because all the water can’t go down.

  6. So pleased you are getting great rainfalls. Hopefully not too much like last time. The area looks so green and lushious. The stock will be loving it or are they are bit soggy underfoot?

  10. we've not had any rain here - i just wish we could have a day of rain - constant, wet rain!
    your pictures are gorgeous. those gums really are majestic. when i was younger i really didn't like natives, but i really have come to love them now.
    do you think we are the only ones in australia not getting rain at the moment. am i perhaps wishing too hard???

    And the gentleman's fancy block sure does look fancy! But effective!

  16. Amazing to see everything so green after your drought. What a difference the flood waters have made. Those gum trees are unlike any trees I'm familiar with, the bark must be quite thin?
    Thanks for the great photos.
