Still waiting

While the first of the November storms have passed through, only about 5mm fell here. As has happened all year, good rain further north and south. About the only plants in my garden that get a good amount of water are those in my pond.

We are now at the time of the year when evaporation goes out of control, but I simply must wait until my water irises have done their thing. Once the flowers wither, on goes the shade cloth.

We are also still waiting for the first croak of the froggy season. Or is it that the frogs themselves are also waiting for rain this dry dry year. Perhaps they will stay underground this year. In the meantime there is only silence at night.
