Dry soil after the storm

Dry soil after the stormAfter the storms that hit Brisbane yesterday you might expect that I could give watering a rest for a while.

Not true.

We’ve just had the driest three months since I’ve been here.

Yes that’s right, drier than the drought.

And soil that dry soaks up a lot of water. We had 63mm and not a drop left the garden.
See how dry the soil is after two thirds of November’s average rainfall fell in one go.
