Unseasonal Sunday

We are supposed to be having lovely hot weather here to finish our harvest but instead we are having cool, wet weather. Over the last 10 days we have had 6 inches of rain!!! last year we had a drought an received only 4 inches for the year and to date this year we have had just over 24 inches!! What a contrast! So I thought I would join Seasonal Sunday with some photos from last week when we were busy harvesting and now some photos from this week when we can’t even drive on the paddocks!! Talk about unseasonal. These photos were taken about 6 hours after the storm had hit. We were harvesting the best crops we have ever had but now it looks as though the grain will be downgraded – who would be a farmer……

I finished work on Wednesday for our Summer break but it was so unusual as it is always hot for our school Christmas party but this year it was quite a cool day.

I hope Santa has his boat ready or we might just miss out on our pressies!!

Thanks for sharing your photos of the "crops." Living as a city girl (with a chicken coop in the backyard), I forget how important weather is to those with real farms. Blessings to you this season. ~CJ

Oh, goodness. Hard to harvest in the rain. Hope Santa has an ark! :D :D
