blue ginger with rain drops

blue ginger with rain drops, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

The summer rains have arrived again. Two days of torrential rain, approx 200mm. The mulched areas became mini lakes and we watched as the level rose closer to the house. Jack rushed out in his undies to clear passages for the runoff to escape.

We were away during the rains of last summer and previous to that we had experienced 10 years of drought and minimal rain. Fortunately the Burleigh area was not flooded and again we are lucky to be spared the worst, with areas both north and south being evacuated and schools closed.

A paw paw tree fully laden with fruit fell over with the weight of the rain but it was tied back up and it should survive. The garden is planted and designed as a tropical garden so the plants are loving this weather pattern and when the rain stops, being sandy soil, it drains away quickly and leaves everything fresh and sparkling.
