And boy has it rained in the past 10 days since Cyclone Yasi (thankfully!) missed us! 280mm - over 11 inches - in the past 24 hours alone.
And how we love the rainy season, the rain thundering on the roof and overflowing the gutters, that oh so distinctive smell of warm tropical rain and then the vibrant colours when the sun comes out again, the birds singing and within hours the gardens are alive with butterflies.
I took this shot of the front of the house this morning.
