slight problem...  
um... SLIGHT flood...

this is - not a dam, actually. this is our lawn looking very non-lawnish.

our lovely new deck, boat shed and jetty - all of which just happen to be underwater...

How big is your garden?!

Our garden is 3 metres by 4 metres!

Luckily I live in a hill, so we don't get flooding!
ellymelly: samrodneyatlantisellymelly on February 15th, 2009 10:15 pm (UTC)
about 300acres or 84 hectares lol. you're lucky about no flooding. it's a real worry hear when it can get like this in a couple of days.

I'm hoping for a dry, sunny week or more ahead to let you catch back up!
ellymelly: may I take your order?ellymelly on February 15th, 2009 10:16 pm (UTC)
lol. dry sunny week. that'd be wonderful :D without wind if at all possible.
hypercazhypercaz on February 15th, 2009 06:33 pm (UTC)
LOL! And oh noes! I have English second-cousins over at the moment, and all their friends said "damn, you're going to get all that sun and we're stuck in rainy old England".

Except it's done nothing but rain in Sydney, hehe. And my second-cousins are heading up to Port Mac in a few days. I couldn't help but giggle.

Lovely pics though :)

a land of droughts and flooding rains. and i haven't forgotten about that thing either. i've just been trying to catch up on everything since i've been back. i will get it to you, promise! :D (i know, i know... it's sooooo late)

Man, that must suck that you get flooded so often. But those are some amazing photos!

Send some of it down here. My garden is a dustbowl.

(hope it doesn't get any worse ::hugs::)

*tries to*

i really wish i could, it's all going to waste flowing straight into the river and out into the ocean. are you in victoria? it's so dry down there at the moment. dad lives in melbourne and he says it's just a brown dirt.
