Projects Around Home - the deck

Final roof beams going onto the house!  Big celebration tonight!

Rain, rain, rain

During the month of December we have had a total of 324mm of rain.  For the four days from 24th to 27th December there was 176mm so the ground was totally saturated.  Worms came to the surface of the soil and drowned, much to the delight of the three ducks next door.

We have a new water feature, McGovern falls:

Basically the natural waterway or "summer stream" as the real estate agents might call it, really got going and was gushing through the sheep yard and into the neighbour's back yard.  Certainly will make the grass grow now!
