We had been discussing what to do with ‘Gary’s pad since we completed the Acacia Garden Wall and now it was time to make a decision.
We had thought about more gardens on either side? A path of some sort? A winding path with edge? But we chose to leave the pad as grass for the moment.
For the second time this winter we got an extraordinary weather pattern that brought about unseasonable wind and rain to South East Queensland. An east coast Low pressure system, inconjunction with a surface trough brought us strong winds and unseasonable rain. br> br>
We only received 75+ mm, but this represents a significant on day fall when the monthly average is just 42mm. br> br>
The total recorded here(so far) for July 2016 is 300.5 mm – representing more than 7 times the average for the month.
