Hail....

Just had a bit of a hail storm with heavy rain as well... The rain was falling from all directions & we had to close all the windows.... Not something that we normally have to do even in the middle of the huge Summer storms we get... I think it lasted for about 15-20 Minutes....
Blue skies except for out the NE / Brisbane way...
The barrels I cut up this morning were empty before the downpour & are sitting under the eaves... They now have about 5cm of water in them.....

The poor pumpkins are the only veg not under the shade cloth  at copped it a bit.... The poor Kent seedling got hit a few times.... The leafy veg, like the Carrots & Beetroot, are laying down from the sheer volume of water that fell in such a small amount of time....
The cooks were safe in their pen & are dry yet slightly flighty.....



The Sun & Rainbow Lorikeets are out now!!!








Have a great one all....
