Rainfall totals

After the deluge last weekend we received 65mm here. This made the total for October 183mm! You have to go back to Jan 1995 to find a month with a total greater than that. So since the beginning of August we have received 353mm which has almost reached the average annual rainfall here for the last 16 years. Year to date 716mm (well over the 16 year average and over the 100 year average) so I guess the drought has well and truly broken. Although strangely the Rosslynne Reservoir is only 17% full whereas every other reservoir in the state is overflowing....
Everything is doing so well! Its amazing to watch the growth of plants and see the huge floral displays. I have garden visitors coming on the 15th of this month and I am so relieved that it will all look as good as it has ever been.
