Shadow Shot Sunday

I will make this post a vege garden update.  All the winter crops are gone, beetroot has been preserved in jars, broccoli has been blanched and frozen, along with excess spinach. Onions are hanging in the garage to finish drying.  Hubby couldn't help himself after the winter success so an early crop of tomatoes, sweet corn, pumpkins, rock melons, capsicums, lettuce and cucumbers were planted. The summer heat up here takes it's toll on  vegetables so not many people worry about planting for summer. These are all looking good at the moment because we have had heavy soaking rain in the last week. We have already started picking tomatoes, capsicums and the odd cucumber will be ready in a day or two.  The early morning sun  cast some nice shadows as we were watering.

Last night's sky, looking eastward at sunset.  Earlier in the day we had another thunderstorm which dropped 9 mils of rain on us, and thankfully put out several bushfires in nearby towns,  which had started the day before due to lightening strikes.

An interesting sky caught my attention earlier this week. Slight rainbow colours appeared in one little patch of clear sky. By the time I had raced in for the camera of course it was fading, drat, don't you hate that.

This sky below  was captured a few days earlier, rain and hail were the order of the day then.

Reynoldson Reserve

This small stretch of bushland comes alive with colour during October through to December. There are seven varieties of verticordia along with grevillea, tea tree and others. The reserve is about 28 klms from Wongan Hills  taking the main road, or just 16klm as the crow flies. The Wongan Hills Visitor Centre is taking bus tours out to the reserve this weekend as part of The Reynoldson Reserve  Festival. Mid October, early November the reserve is at it's peak for the colourful verticordia.
