It's official

As I often wonder if it's just my poor memory when I say things like, "I've been here for 15 years and we've never lit a fire in February," I am pleased to report that the cold wet summer was not a figment of my imagination. The Blue Mountains Gazette, the source of all news Blue Mountains, had an article this week confirming that we had rain on 62 days compared to our usual 32 days. Yes, 2 out of every 3 days rained this summer! And the temperature was on average 2 degrees colder with a mere 2 days over 30 degrees centigrade.

My garden likes it.

"I cannot dance upon my Toes --
No Man instructed me --
But oftentimes, among my mind,
A Glee possesseth me"
