An orange geranium in our backyard this morning.
Well, we have only had 20mm of rain fall in our backyard overnight and it seems positively dry compared to 80mm Thursday. The local rivers have started flooding. Some friends of our family who have a farm inland from Perth have reported that a creek on their property has started flowing for the first time in 20 years. Today has been scheduled for a bridal shower or hen's event for our future daughter-in-law Melanie. A flock of 'hens' including my wife and three daughters have just departed for a rendezvous with others to undertake some secret women's business which will include lunch at a salubrious vineyard in the upper-Swan River region. The women all had to wear something orange, which is Mel's favourite colour.
