Blue skies are back

Now that’s more like it!     The blue skies are back this morning and the sun is shining in Brisbane after the supercell storms over the weekend.

This is the view from my balcony at 6:30am, time for the first cup of tea of the day.

And yes ….   more blue skies around the back too.

Through the back window this morning

Not sure what to expect when I check out the allotment today.  I think I’ll have little cucumbers after all that rain, either that or it will be a scene of devastation.  Watch this space.

Happy gardening.

    Jean I popped down yesterday and it wasn’t too bad. Some of the sunflowers were down but it seemed to survive quiet well. See you Wednesday xxxxxxxx

    It is nice to have the sun back. When we had 11 straight days of ran and dark clouds I began counting down to some sun. I love waking up to the sun shining in my window, perfect way to wake up.

    Nothing like a blue sky to lift your mood. We have cold weather here, but with a blue sky I don’t mind it so much. Glad that your garden survived okay.

    Where you live looks a lot like Perth. I can see the shimmering heat already ;). Glad you didn’t lose too much. I might have to plant out some sunflowers in your honour 🙂

      Lovely to hear from you Anna. Thank you for visiting, I love to follow your blog which reminds me of the time that I lived happily in the north of England. It’s a bit different over here in Queensland. I had to learn all over again about how to grow my veggies. Some veggies I didn’t even recognise over here as we can grow more of the ‘exotic’ stuff. Then I had to be taught how to cook it once I’d grown it! That’s why it’s great to have an allotment because there is never any shortage of ‘good advice’.
