It has been raining solidly for 4 days. The little hint of summer that we had here in Sydney last week has been convincingly washed away. In some ways this makes me very nervous - our wedding reception is outdoors - and it also makes me sad because it means the dahlia season for Sydney will be delayed, and dahlias were my number one choice for wedding flowers (which I am doing myself).
However, I am trying to find a positive outlook on all this rain, and I didn't have to look very far:
My zucchini plants are going absolutely beserk. Would you believe I paid $2 for a tiny punnet of seedlings from Bunnings two weeks ago?
Hello, delicious zucchini flower. You will soon be stuffed with fetta and fried, and on my plate for dinner.
Maybe the rain can be forgiven just this once.
