Lake Dryzabone

Although the sky was filled with menacing clouds this morning the weather report tells us that there's not much chance of rain this afternoon.
Today's forecast from http://www.bom.gov.au/nsw/forecasts/sydney.shtml
We haven't had rain here at Welwel for many a day. The grass is brown, the eucalypts are shedding leaves and the drought- hardy plants are struggling. The water tanks under our house are empty too.

As I came down our drive this morning I thought of the iconic Australian clothing range Driza-bone (Dry as a bone) because that would be a good name for our dam. As I don't want to breach copyright I am naming our dam Lake Dryzabone. The following snaps will show you why.

I wonder where the frogs and fish have gone

Some plants are still green
