rainy tuesday ...

... we live on a cattle property in north west queensland, ... Australia...

it's been raining (which is expected for this time of year) for about a week now and i thought i'd take a few snaps of it all to show you...

... an old gate on the left (from old cattle yards) and my fabulous pink allamanda and some other pink vine ... (which I don't know the name of)

my treasured cumquatt trees (pots) and the back yard

something tells me the mailman won't be bringing our mail this week ...

... and unfortunately for our 4 children ... even when it rains we can STILL homeschool... :-)

rain = grass = happy cattle

we breed Beefmasters

introducing... Bambi ... Daisy and Ben - 3 poddy calves we keep near the house for the kids

... one of our girls is always hoping to discover a fairy ...

... i like the look of this croton ...

LOVE ... my gloriosa lilly - deep pink ...

.. and maybe i HAVE discovered a fairy trail after all ...


~ be thankful for what you have ~

It has been raining here for the last two days. Last night we had a cluster of storms that came through that brought torrential downpours. It has slowed this morning but is supposed to hang around until tomorrow. We don't get much rain here in the summer or fall so we are very grateful for the spring season and the rain it brings. It usually helps with the drought we end up with here in the summer with such hot temperatures.

I love all of your flowers and I have a great admiration for those of you who home school. You're days must be very busy!

Love the fairy trail! I just love seeing the little mushrooms pop up and they do it right when you aren't looking too :-) I didn't realise you were homeschooling, how old are your little ones?
