We've had heavy rain today. It seems strange to not know how bad the flooding is down our road, to be living in a place where flooding is not on the radar. But I still have an interest in how much water is flowing down out of the mountains as there is a little stream at the foot of the garden here where I am staying. When the rain stopped around 5.30 pm I went for a stroll to check out the waterfall.
The easiest to access waterfall is a pretty spot. I took the photo above last weekend and the one below this evening. There's a marked difference in the amount and colour of the water.
I've been watching a little tree in the garden, wondering what it is, the buds seem to grow each day. Spring is approaching and I look forward to seeing it burst into life.
I took this next photo within minutes and noticed how dark the sky was becoming. More rain on the way I thought.
But when I looked off to the east a weak sun was touching the top of a distant hill.
Aha, I thought, the rain has gone. But, as if to say, make up your mind the sky to the west, in the next few minutes, just before dark descended looked like this:
Guess I will have to check the weather forecast, I'm confused.
