|small creek emerging on the veggie path|
We are all ok here, a bit of water in the garage, but basically dry up here on a small hill but those by the Cooks River I guess are a bit wet! Are other Sydney bloggers ok?
Whatever we got is nothing compared to what our country cousins on the Murrumbidgee and the Lachlan and in northern Victoria have had to suffer, it must be terrible.
This picture shows the view down to our vegie patch ( thru the arch). You can see a small creek rising - that's the shiny patch running under the arch so the path to the vegies was pretty wet. But I checked the vegies and even after 110 mls in 24 hours, they all looked fine!

The rocket and lettuce babies are fine, there are even self-seeded tomatoes coming up. The snow peas are looking terrific!

|Wet Laurie and Keates|
But poor Laurie and Keats the Rainbow Lorikeets were completely drenched. What do birds do in such rain? They turned up looking for food and were very bedraggled. (For those unfamilair with these birds, their wings should be bright green.)
The frog pond was full to the brim and looked just lovely. I hope that the tadpoles didn't get washed out of the pond. Hopefully they stayed safe in their favourite place - the mud at the bottom of the pond.
I hope everyone is dry, your veggies are well drained and that you haven't got the latest Sydney plague - not stink bugs, not aphids - leeches!
