Contrasts.......

Yesterday afternoon I went to the creek again..........
It was like a mirror almost..........gorgeous.........
Some of you long time followers have commented on the change here..........It sure is worlds away from the 3 years of drought (probably 10 years with little breaks) preceding these 3 years of La Nina.........I do appreciate that you noticed the changes......thankyou.....
I found this post here back in March 19.......
And looking at 19 and the start of 20 (beginning of the drought breaking) I didn't blog much at all............
Its more now I am realising the effects the prolonged drought had on me.......
Physical and mental scars.......
****
Good news is I got a quilt top finished yesterday..........Except I found a fade line on the border......hmmm what to do now........It may stay as is......I'll look in better light today.........
Have a great weekend..........
Catch you later.......

I started reading your blog during the drought. it fascinated me how you were watering the animals. Then you started posting about Scrub Stitching. I have been a follower ever since. I still have quite a few Churn Dash bocks to make but next week when I have time.

I remember how hard it was for you during the drought.
Such a big difference now in this post.

That first photo is absolutely beautiful & although I'm a short term follower, I do remember different years of drought over my 70+ years & understand the consequences it can have on us, our families, farming & towns. Another La Nina.......wondering how that is going to affect the east coast states? Great you got in some stitching time. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, take care & hugs.

Glad you got a quilt finished. The differences between now and the drought are quite incredible. Hope you don't have too much water now! Christine xx

Yes I remember your drought posts and so pleased to see the countryside now. Beautiful photos. Farming is not for the faint hearted, and certainly takes a toll.

Beautiful reflections. It’s amazing how the landscape can change

It is amazing how much rain you are getting compared to how much you got previously. I can well imagine the scars the drought would have caused. So pleased you are having a change of scenery and that scenery is green - even if it's a little soggy at times.
