Yesterday was a glorious day here in my north-eastern tropical corner, and a very mild winter's day. The temps last night were almost summery and then something even stranger occurred just as our Winter Solstice day was drawing to an end. We heard soft tinkling splashes of rain on our tin roof all through the night!
The view from the verandah this morning was rather dreary. The hills were hard to spot in amongst the grey cloud coverage and the rain has continued falling softly all morning. It's still falling as I type up this post. We're in the midst of our dry season here, and rain during our first winter month of June is not all the common. We did get a few millimetres back at the beginning of the month, and admittedly the rain that fell overnight was very light indeed, but still it's a little out of the ordinary for this time of year. Delightful, all the same!
The courtyard garden is splashed with little raindrops,
as is the shadehouse garden. I'm afraid I didn't venture any further to take shots of what's blooming this week.
Out in the courtyard I can see ...
Out in the shadehouse I can see ...
and Dragon Wing Begonias.
There are a couple of really beautiful blooms inside the house at the moment. I was given a couple of Orchid blooms just the other day and they're adorning the bench in my kitchen at the moment. They are simply lovely.
