Thank-you Santa

What's happening in the veggie garden?  
Absolutely nothing. I've quit!! I'm tired of throwing good water onto a garden when all mother nature can help me out with is a few 10mm falls since the end of June. It was 39c yesterday and not much better today. When or if I start to get some help from the heavens above then I start planting again.

 On a brighter note I went a saw my local Kawasaki dealer this morning and made me an offer on a KLR650 that I've been saving all year and it was too good to refuse.
So all things being equal, by the end of the week I should have a brand new shinny Candy Lime Green machine in my garage.

Thank-you Santa

I love a sunburnt country (not),

So much for the rain huh? I'm still watering veggies and kicking up dust. This is getting as bad as before the floods.

I love a sunburnt country (not),
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains (tell me about it).
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me(meh! may-be)!

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.....
