It’s raining

Here we go with a multiple photo challenge post again
The main object of the photos I took today were for Sunshine’s Macro Monday #30
and then I thought this is a good one for Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #16 inspired by his photo of red water droplets
Looking at my notifications I saw that Bren’s Photo for the Week – 57 – Flowers also fitted in for this series of images taken during another wonderful rain shower this morning.

The rains have come

Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #14

Yes it has been raining and raining and raining. From drought to fire to flood, welcome to Australia.

All of my water tanks are full to overflowing. This is my household water supply.

The recent rain over the weekend and yesterday and today have ensured my dams are overflowing as well. Yes I have water, water everywhere. The gullies are rushing, the sounds of water during the day and the sounds of frogs of a night.

This dam is a small dam which has a limited catchment and doesn’t fill readily. This is more of a wetland for frogs and animals to utilise. Not much of a wetland as the little vegetation that was there as the dam dried in the drought has been burnt. The vegetation will come back. A couple of water plants have emerged already.

This is the big dam that doesn’t actually hold water. The dam wall gives me access to the rest of my property. The insect and frog life here is amazing. 20200211_blog challenge_water water_big dam_full_home
Here is the House Dam which you have seen many times over the past couple of years full and overflowing. The small patch of lillies was the size of the dam a few months ago20200211_blog challenge_water water_house dam_full_home
