So nice to see raindrops on plants after many dusty months. We had our first rains since spring on Oct 23rd - 50mm in 45 minutes.

This morning we woke to what I call a politician sky, promises a lot but delivers very little. However this afternoon this happened, the first real rain that we've had for 12 months!!
