JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

The wet season...where has it gone!

The weather has been very strange.  In January ex tropical cyclone dumped almost 500mm on us and then we had nothing.  Nothing for weeks.  That in itself is very strange.  Perhaps it's going to be a late wet season.  Let's hope so.  We have already started selling off cattle at Julia Creek.  The prices are terrible but it's a case of "sell them or smell them".
Today here at Julatten it feels different.  While I was having breakfast on the verandah this morning some really dark clouds rolled in and dumped a beautiful amount of rain on us.  It didn't last long but the garden will love it.  Here is the photo sequence.

And then it was gone!
