This morning I ventured out into the rain for a leisurely walk to take some pictures. It was just a drizzle and absolutely calm. I was able to walk with an umbrella without having to fear that some nasty wind would rip it apart. The bush smelled lovely after being slowly soaked with beautiful warm rain. Yes, it’s still in the low twenties, Celsius I mean. For me this is still a very pleasantly wet summer day.
And then I walked back via Lakelands Park.

It is about time we had a little bit of rain. The man sitting at the computer is looking through a window to the world.
Too right, it is a window to the world, isn’t it?
I am glad we have now this change in this weather! 🙂
Still, it’s only January. Some more heatwaves might still come our way.
Although it’s raining outside Uta , you captured the day beautifully. Brooks Creek looks very relaxing even in the rain.
Take care and enjoy that clean fresh air.
I find this warm summer rain quite enjoyable, Sheila. Brooks Creek doesn’t really look much like a creek at the moment. A lot of plants grow in it and do not let the water run through freely anymore.
I love the smell of the bush after it has been raining a bit.
Sou amiga da Gislinde e vim conhecer o seu WD
Good pitures Uta. Peter looks a bit like my brother in law who is also German born. The garden looks lovely.
I love taking pictures while I am walking, Gerard. Makes my walks quite interesting for I look at things I would otherwise perhaps not take so much notice of. I do not mind a bit of rain, especially in summer. At the moment I do not fear that our grass might dry out. 🙂
Danke liebe Ute für deinen Besuch so schöne Bilder,war bestimmt eine schöne Wanderung ein schönes Stücken Erde,da könnte ich mir vorstellen auch zu Wandern.Ich hoffe das es dir gut geht,wir haben hier in Köln Freuhlingsafte Temperaturen heute war es 13 Grad warm fast wie Frühling.Ich wünsche dir noch eine glückliche Zeit.Liebe Grüße Gislinde
Danke, liebe Gislinde. Es war eigentlich mehr wie ein kleiner Spaziergang. Heute morgen gleich nach dem Aufstehen machte ich wieder so einen Spaziergang. Ich ging den gleichen Weg entlang, aber diesmal etwas schneller. Ich fühlte mich voller Energie und brauchte zwischendurch überhaupt keine Pausen machen. Irgendwie ging es mit meinem Atem viel besser als sonst. Es war immer noch recht feucht, Temperatur 20 Grad Celsius. Liebe Grüsse, Uta.
I bet that was refreshing after all the heat and smoke you’ve endured!
Linda, yes, we did have a bit of heat before it rained, but where we live there was no smoke, none whatsoever. So our air is clean and beautiful fresh with that bit of rain we have at the moment.
I hope the cooler temperatures and maybe some rain, where there are still a lot of fires, is going to keep all the fires under control. The fires are many miles away from us, but still they stretch over vast areas in several states of Australia. There are literally still hundreds of fires burning. Fires like this usually last for many weeks!
Good night, Araan, Sleep well! 🙂
