The big wet
This winter has been the wettest I can remember for a long time. Our little dam is nearly overflowing and the paddocks next door are under water. All our water from the house flow into drains out the back and water the fruit trees and these are full. This hasnt happend for nearly 10 years. When we first moved here back 22 years ago, this was a regular event. Our paddock used to look like a lake. It was so bad we had to add fill.
It really is great to see all that water and know that the ground is so wet that the fruit trees will have lots to draw on this summer.
I only hope that the dam doesnt overflow! It has never been so full since we built it.
I hope you get all the rain you need, and if you dont need any then it stops raining for you.
