Wet Stuff

Today, as I write, the rain is  a persistent heavy drizzle, and the outdoor temperature about 16 C.  Yesterday was a lovely 31 C.   The 36 hours earlier produced an inch of rain (25mm).

Before it all began, we had a glorious sunset.WP_20150110_019The next day, I had to put a raincoat on to take the dog for her walk.WP_20150110_002Constant bubbles rose to the surface of the puddles, as air in the soil was displaced.WP_20150110_004But the ants knew more was to come …  I’ve never seen nest ramparts built so high. The pine cone was already there, it wasn’t a prop.WP_20150111_010The wet brought the snails out … nearly stepped on this pair.snail pairVika loved her walk, as usual, no matter the weather. She would love to get a closer look at the honey stall across the road on the weekends. Honey mainly, but eggs, tomatoes and horse manure too.WP_20150110_006All photos taken with the Nokia phone camera, on auto.


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. Love the photo’s. The rain is wonderful, but I hope you don’t have the weather we had yesterday, it was so humid, about 94%. Had air con on last night and I looked out the window and it was covered in condensation, so walked outside and it was like walking into a sauna. Much better today, still drizzly but nice and cool.
