“Nothing quite like it for cooling the brain”
With apologies to Flanders and Swann.

Although Flanders & Swann wrote numerous songs together and toured the world with their revues At The Drop Of A Hat and At The Drop Of Another Hat, if there is one song for which they will be remembered it is "The Hippopotamus Song.
We have had 19.5mm rainfall since last night, the air is cooled, the grass has a slight,ever so slight greener tinge, the flowers are drooping under the raindrops, and all farmers and gardeners are hoping for more.
Raindrops on Alstromeria flowers, droplets on the water lily leaves and the pond, Kangaroo Paw or Anigozanthos standing tall, and Ginger Boy playing in the Catnip plant.He leapt up to the plant, pawed the leaves, breathed in that heady aroma, until he almost fell off the edge.This was taken on one of our very hot days.
Quotation of the day, author unknown
“ A true friend is one who lends you her umbrella, when you walk together in the pouring rain”
