Yesterday morning’s sunrise was colourful, making me think that perhaps finally, the weather forecasters may be correct in predicting some much needed rain to fall in this area. Late afternoon indeed, there was a brief thunderstorm, followed by a lovely gentle soaking rain which continued well into the night. Today the showers came between patches of sunshine. The grasses which germinated with rains a month ago, have received a much needed boost, and should be able to continue to grow now into this autumn season. I’m hoping I may find some mushrooms soon in my early morning explorations!
