Glass half full or…

Mine’s been filled many times over the past few weeks with lots of icy cold water 🙂

Much cooler today and even some fine misty rain. Very welcome!

 

Blue water

I have no idea what this blue ‘water’ I spotted in a carpark puddle is . . . but I’m sure it will inspire lots of writers to come up with an explanation 🙂

 

Our tank runneth over!

Today’s prompt…

Just an hour before I took this photo, I told Rod who was working in rain in Melbourne that I didn’t think we were going to get much until later in the night when  large band of cloud moved over from South Australia! But what would I know?

Half an hour before this shot, I noticed very dark clouds approaching and re-assessed my prediction. I fed the dogs and chooks and brought Bailey in from his outside cubby (the one in the photo). Then, as the thunder started and first drops fell, I took a few couple of photos of the dam, thinking we might get enough overnight to raise the level a couple of inches.

We got 21mm in about twenty minutes. The inlet for the tank couldn’t cope with the rush and it poured over the side (but the tank is almost full again). And the dam? After the initial downpour, light/steady rain continued and the dam level went up well over a metre in a couple of hours. None of the damage as so many have in other areas, just an incredible experience, lots of great photos and no more watering for a few days 🙂 And . . . I am very grateful!

Our power went out for three hours after that but a small price to pay 🙂

 

Cool Water

From what I’ve read about some very famous writers throughout history, they loved to imbibe much stronger liquids but with another warm day forecast, I’m very grateful for our beautiful water filter 🙂

One day I’d like to put some Water Lilies in our dam but until then this flowering plant is quite pretty 🙂

Watering

Today’s prompt…

Unfortunately, still no rain here so I was up early before it got too hot to bucket water onto as many plants as I could. Luckily, we have a dam and although it’s going down quickly, Rod can fill the tank above so we have water closer to the garden. Once again, rain is forecast for the end of the week. Once again, fingers crossed 🙂

The Drinking Fountain

Today’s prompt…

…brings me back to my childhood and the rows of bubble taps we used. Many of us had a plastic bottle in our lunch boxes filled with cordial (frozen for summer) but fruit boxes were unheard of and soft drink only for special treats.
