Dust & Flowers.......

What a few weeks of busyness we have had at our place!!  Work is settling into a nice routine.  I'm not as tired and the job itself is quite easy now I have the hang of it all.  I'm not sure about the checking behind people's ears to adjust spectacles though!!!  YUK! 

Our Carnival of Flowers is over for another year.  We won a second place in the Semi Advanced section this year.  Our garden was open for nine days to the public.  Being a little out of the city always means not many people venture our way.  A little disappointing really for all the work that goes into it all.  We won some cash and also a two night holiday at a lovely resort, so that was a lovely surprise.

We still haven't had any rain and the effects are really starting to take hold.  We are reaching desparation point as our tanks are nearly empty.  There is some rain predicted for during the week.  So, here's hoping.

Since my last post we have endured three dust storms.  This was the first, pictured above.  It was horrendous.  Since then we have had another two, not quite as bad but still awful.  The outside is a mess, and of course no water means no cleaning up.  Some people are saying all this dust must mean good rain on the way and the end of the drought.  I hope they are right!!
