Yesterday we were waiting for a storm to open its rainy little heart and fill our barren water tank.
It kept passing us by though. I sat in the veggie patch with Mana, and we
watched it go north then south then west...
nothing....not a drop.

Our little chook house, nestled between our apricot and almond tree.
With parsley going to seed in the foreground, and one of Wayne's bird
sculpture's on top, guarding it all.

Then....later into the evening, that fresh, hard, pure rain fell to the earth.
Yay, Yay, Yay for rain clouds.

And in the morning, the sun is shinning and everything is
crispy and fresh. And our tank has a little more water in it....


  1. Everything needs moisture to nourish ourselves. Hoping you and your sweet world get much more soon! nell

  2. What a great shot of the chook shed and the moody clouds! Love it.
    Glad you got some of that water to put some water back in your tank.

  3. Those dark clouds are amazing, dramatic - actually quiet beautiful. I'm glad you finally got the rain.

  4. yay, I am having fun with Instagram and the way it accentuates colors and texture. Thanks guys, i love a storm.

    Clare, we will definitely be posting a lot about our house, once we ever get started. So will share everything on info etc...

  5. I'm glad you got at least a bit of rain. Chook sheds are almost always aesthetically pleasing and full of character. yours is no exception. Someone should do a glossy coffee table book. :)

  6. Hi Rex,

    I just wanted to visit and thank you so much for your comment on my blog -- I'm a bit out of the loop blog-reading-wise these days -- but I am struck by the beauty of yours -- the landscape, the photographs, the art -- it looks amazingly lovely. I'm excited to visit your world through this blog --thank you for finding mine.

    Just when I thought I couldn't be more entranced with Australia see your writing/pictures. I feel a kinship as well because I used to live in the American West -- near the mountains -- in a more rural and people-less place -- and came to reflect so much on the people who were first on the land...

    So nice to *meet* you.

    And chook shed sounds so much nicer than our 'chicken coop'...
