The garden tank ran out of water in May and the dam is little more than a muddy puddle.
Pauline rang to boast that the forecast for Inverell promised a 40% chance of 1mm - little more than a defiant sparrow spit - but delivered 1.5 mm! The view of the paddocks and the long range forecast are quite bleak.
Time to consider a resilience strategy that starts with the words ‘Despite the Drought’ and collects a multitude of stories and observations from you, our irrepressible readers.
So, to start….. Despite the drought, the flowering quince is flowering and the weeds are still coming up through the pavers.
Please send us your stories, observations and pictures of resilience - we’d love a decent compilation before the rain comes (but we won’t complain if the rain comes first!)
