The whole country is very, very dry with drought conditions in many places. Rain is desperately needed by people who farm the land and who grow plants. I am watering my vegies and plants on a daily basis and further water restrictions are on the horizon.
It is hot and it is dry.
Some refreshment would be welcome and would provide balance.
I went in search of some cooler conditions this morning and enjoyed the green of the regenerating bush area nearby.
Something has been enjoying some refreshment eating this green leaved Kawakawa plant.
And a blackbird was eating these juicy berries.
Despite the lack of rain there is still green, juiciness to be found in my backyard thank goodness.
