There is a nice bit of gentle follow up rain here at Lantanaland as I sit in bed writing this. The storm to the north is rumbling away and I can feel those dry cracks in the paddock where the chooks are closing up as the rain seeps into the ground. Already the grass is starting to green up. The free kikuyu paddock which was starting to look a bit bare is greening up nicely. Soon it will be growing quicker than the cows can eat it.
There is just a loosening of the shoulders once the rain comes, that feeling that things will get a move on. Now that I have a ready supply of water and some moisture in the soil, I can too. A few weeks and I am going to start planting fruit trees.
