What a difference a week makes...

... well, actually 2 weeks, during which time there were several days with solid rain.

I've just got back from a very fleeting trip to Australia for a friend's wedding, and managed to squeeze in 2 hours at Amherst en-route to the airport. To my amazement, it was green! It's such a relief to see how quickly it greens up; to have a reminder that it's not always dusty and drab.

The lemongum trees are doing magnificently. You're starting to be able to get the effect of them lining the driveway now.

The dam has filled up quite a bit - the ridge is still visible but closing over at one end.

Unfortunately the orchard isn't doing so well (more on that soon) but just look at the green!

Here's a short clip combining images with some panoramic videos to show more:
