My good friend Dianne is away at the moment. She could even be languishing on the golden sands of a beach at the Sunshine Coast something like this one as I write.:
While she is off enjoying herself we woke to a misty foggy morning today.
|view from my patio|
At least the rain is keeping the temperatures down. We had a whole 2 inches of rain on Wednesday night. There is a huge gum tree in the park behind my unit, which loses lots of leaves which clog up the gutters on the roof. I actually experienced a torrent seeping in down the wall near the kitchen.... I had visions of the ceiling caving in, but that did not eventuate thank goodness... once the downpour was over the torrent stopped.
Yes there is a man coming to clean out the gutters. He was due next Monday.... if only we could get the council to trim the huge gum tree!!!
My herb plants are loving the rain, but my poor little tomato plants are still struggling. I think I need a larger container. The gum leaves on the ground are only a fraction of what I sweep up every couple of days.
Hope you are enjoying your holiday Di.......(is that envy you hear in my voice...yes it is.)
