365/141: 10 July 2010: Reflections on Rainfall

Had our first real rain for some considerable time this weekend – and aren’t peoples reactions so predictable. Yesterday it was – ‘ooh. the gardens are so dry ‘ and today it’s all gloom because we can’t go out. But the weathermen do it for me – sounding apologetic when they tell us that the good weather is coming to an end. Come on guys – it’s about balance – it’s not good weather if everything shrivels and dies. And if it didn’t rain I’d live in the Valley District or perhaps even the Arid Sand District – neither of which sound anywhere near as interesting. To celebrate the return of moisture here’s a pic taken on next doors nature pond:
