For a week the forecast has been promising us rain, but all that fell was drizzling showers from cloudy skies.
At last rain has arrived.
During the night, heralded by thunder and lightening, it was torrential. Pouring like sustenance from the heavens. A life giving 36mm.
This morning the garden sparkled. Raindrops shone like jewels decorating every leaf.The plants exploded like fireworks extolling the beauty of nature.
Like arms reaching to the skies in an expression of joy.The garden is vibrant and alive and I can feel the energy, the renewed vigour that rain brings to the earth.The colours glow.
After the heart ache and extended period of drought and the sorrow of bushfires at last some relief. The rain may not last long but while it is here, and it is forecast to last for a few more days, nature has chance to regrow and, hopefully, it will be a time of renewal.
