Those of you in the northern hemisphere, or anyone north of us really, will probably think I'm mad - but I love rain.
I love the sound it makes on the roof and I will, more often than not, stop conversations to listen to it.
I love to watch it fall outside - I can sit and stare out the window for hours - except that it rarely rains for hours here.
These pics were taken from our brief outing at Mt Lofty Botanical Gardens - I say brief as we didn't realise it was going to rain and we were not really prepared for it. We managed to stay out for about 30 minutes but then we got too wet. It was lovely walking in it though - so soft and gentle. The scenery was beautiful and the smell was intoxicating........
