We have had so much rain lately, it is great for the garden after so many years of drought conditions and water restrictions.
A lot of the big trees in the neighbourhood have suffered from stress over the recent years and now that we are having rain & strong wind storms they are falling over or at least dropping large limbs.
I took these pics of the views from our kitchen window yesterday. We are up fairly high so there is no risk of flooding: it is lovely to be as high as some of the big trees.
Of course this kind of weather is ideal for stitching which is great.
