I could not resist these violas while at Bunnings with Mum the other day. Spring flowers always suck me in, even though our winter is scarcely colourless nor extreme in any sense of the word. The flowers always make me feel hopeful that the summer will be lovely, though in my heart I know I will still hate the heat, and that by February I will be gasping for reprieve!
Still, I can hope, can't I? MAybe this summer will bring the rain we still need. Last week we enjoyed a whole week of rain, but still our region only received a few weeks of water in the catchment. Just an hour north of us, enough water to fill our dams flooded towns and flowed out to sea. It's enough to make you weep.
