we long for the rain

at summer’s end


We’ve just had the hottest, driest summer on record in this part of the world. Summer is normally the wet season in the sub-tropics of Australia, so it has been strange not getting the afternoon storms and heavy bursts of rain. The grass is like straw and cracks underfoot. The wildlife is skulking closer and closer to the house at night, to nibble at our lawn and have a drink of water. Please rain 😒
