That bubbling sound …

Today’s wonderful rain (I’ve just tipped 21mm from the gauge) will be well received by the Loddon River. Remarkably the Loddon started flowing over a week ago – it seems the springs in the upper reaches had already  ‘sprung into action’, generating a gentle trickle through Newstead.

A visit at the weekend was enhanced by the sounds of a bubbling river … matched by the bubbling calls of Swift Parrots in the River Red-gums overhead.

    Lovely 34mm to 2pm today. Wonderful to water filling the dam….and our water tank.

  4. Nice to hear the news of rain from across the region. Blessings and best wishes to all. There is a lovely old-fashioned word for such an occasion – Benison!

  5. Really like your Cumbungi shot with colours complimented by the Loddon water reflections.

    I, too, love your Cumbungi shot.
