Sunflowers and then the rain…

Welcome to South-East Queensland.

For days the sun has shone and the heat rose to a steamy, humid, almost unbearable 34C.

It didn’t cool down much during the night. The hottest night in 10 years the media told us. They also said 83% of Brisbane households have an air conditioner, and they estimated nearly all of them were turned on.

We are in the 17% that do not have an air conditioner. It was a difficult night….

But the sunflowers love this weather.

Then today the storm came. Torrential rain, thunder and lightning

The fish ponds over flowed.

The paved area round the side of the house became a mini lake.

And the rain forest area lived up to its name.

I will now be able to roll the hose up and put it away for a few days.
