Floral Friday Challenge.


While in Sydney, some of us decided to visit Kings Cross
kings-cross_0439For readers unfamiliar with King’s Cross…

not that I am…

Google ; have you ever been to see kings cross

and you will hopefully find a novelty song from 1962.

I remember the chorus quite well,

so was keen to see King’s Cross

My contribution for this week’s challenge…



My topic may not be exciting but it is certainly welcome.

We were due for a change – rain – over night…mid-night

according to the Weather Bureau.

I opened a door at 0400 and all I could smell

was smoke from fires in the general area.

Lorne (2-3 hours drive away) is a popular

coastal holiday destination this time of year and

is surrounded by fires at the moment.

An evacuation order has been implemented.

Since 4 AM we have had a welcome 10 mm of rain

which will have raised our tanks by 6.000 litres.backyard_8192

The green turf is facing its second summer and appears

decidedly healthier this morning after a natural watering.

Yesterday in 35 degree temps they were seeking

the coolest spot in the yard.

and that sky holds promise of some more rain….hopefully.
