Rain - again!!

Today we're having our first serious rain for a month. We did hope that a downpour in early March was the start of the Autumn break - but it didn't continue.
Today's rain has topped up nearly all of our tanks and is great for the veggie garden as well as the pasture.
Three of the Maremmas are in hiding because they hate thunder but hopefully it won't last long and they will get back to work.
It's just great to see puddles.
Our new flock of pullets is wondering what this wet stuff is because none of them has seen rain before. With a bit of luck they will start laying this week - just in time for Easter.
