At last, wonderful soaking rain.

The animals and birds here have a different problem as this guy shows.

No more fires! Mother nature has stopped the flames in it's tracks.
Imagine standing in the wet and mud this morning trying to salvage anything in your house that was destroyed by the fire. It must be a most horrible experience to see everything that you have worked for totally destroyed in a very short time.
The rain started last night and it is still raining this morning so those dark fire clouds have all disappeared.

Did I tell you that it is very wet here?

That little squirrel near Harry at the water bowl has still not learned to stay away from the goose. Look at the back of the picture.

The relief that the rain brought cannot be overemphasized as we had 4 days of a fiery hell over here. Our dam levels were also dropping fast due to the stringent heat and now the perfect solution has arrived at last.
We are in a winter rain area and this fall spells good news for the rest of the winter season, as we hope that plenty more water will come.
What a nice way to enter the new week.

Thank you to to all for the prayers!

And That's All Friends.

Squirrel will get told off by goose, no messing with my food....

Rains in the right season for you, massive assistance from nature killing the fires off too.

Stay dry !LUV from Durban.

Hahaha, the new young squirrels don't know Harry yet and I will soon do a post to show how Harry teaches them respect.

The rains came in perfect timing Lady Joan, as that fire was really getting out of hand.

Most times !LOLZ from Cape Town.

Look how demanding the squirrel stands at the window "open the window, I am hungry!" 😉
And the wet dove looks like a wet cat 😅

I am happy that the rain has extinguished the fires.

Hahaha, I am used to the squirrel's tricks to get a nut my friend 😉

Shame, imagine how that dove will feel if I tell him that my friend says that he looks like a wet cat 🤣

Happiness all round here and great relief.

Cheers and thanks.

I am so glad the rain has finally arrived, put out the fire and starting to fill the dams, that is great news. The rain might get the wee animals wet but at least they are not getting scorched from the fire!

Great to see the rains… poor animals hehehe
Yes, Mother Nature helped out big time, but just imagining that one is standing at the doorstep of the burned house in the mud 😔😖

Here it’s stabilised at the moment. The helicopters are dropping water in surrounding areas of the fire to cool the earth down. If only we had some rain… Humidity is down to 20% 🤨 so this will help a bit. Also the firefighters 🚒
Almost 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Greetings Lady Jo and thanks for popping in.

Oh yes, the rains arrived in the nick of time as they say.
Some are saying that we have a wild zoo here in the garden 😊
