There is an English saying that goes like this.
Ash before Oak, in for a soak
Oak before Ash, in for a dash.
Well it appears that my ash is starting to leaf
while my oak is still bare.
And guess what – we are having a soaking. We had “officially” 58mm overnight and another 7mm since 9am. My 3000 litre tank is actually full!
And as I drove home from lunch with my friend, it appears Lake Burley Griffin is also full as one of the flood gates on the dam was open.
So 365 minus 191 days – ash trees know what they are talking about!
