Summer on its way and so nice outside

It’s so beautiful outside. Spring soon will turn into summer and the weather during the day is already so awesome. Early sunrise, long days, still cool nights and cold wind but that will change soon.

You need to be careful not to get sunburned as the sun is strong but the wind cool so you do not feel the UV. The grass is growing, the flowers are blooming. And the first strawberries of the season harvested. Just so great to be outside.

Looking forward to the summer BBQ’s. Let’s bring on Christmas.

Keeping busy

Over the last weekend we had a delivery of Macrocarpa firewood and also got a lot of old pine out of our forest, all piled up ready to be split.

Drylands

The last few months were pretty dry with no rainfall other than a few drops that pretty much instantly evaporated upon hitting the ground.
I think the last rain was some time before Christmas last year which would make it three months with no rain at all.

Even rain can be beautiful

Over the last couple of weeks we had quite a mix of weather – typical spring. From lovely warm and sunny days where you easily get sunburned to torrential rain that flooded the valley.

The weather has not been too amazing over the last couple of weeks.

Its been pretty wet all of yesterday and this morning the valley greets us with a bit of ponding water.
