Looking out from our shade courtyard, across the flooded road to the paddocks of wheat. Goulburn Valley life.
The road to our home after one hour of rain. This photo was taken during a break in the rain. At its peak the water was flowing fast and waterfalls were pouring off our roof. That's my cottage garden on the right, the wheat crop (will have made a mess of that) on the left of the road/water. Glad my visitors left, the back of their car would be sitting in a river by now. We expected this. The fun of living on a floodplain—not complaining about it, we love it here.
One hour of tropical rain and we have a riverside property once again. Those cushion covers on the sofa had just arrived today. They were a part of my fun, online Christmas shopping. I find it so much easier to shop online these days, especially when the road becomes a river.
