You know how I spent weeks and weeks digging out all the accumulated sand and silt in the lower end of the creek? It was hard work but I really enjoyed it, planning how to persuade it to meander prettily and get water to hopefully sit in pools before escaping to the neighbour's property. Every day we've been walking along the creek, waiting waiting waiting for it to start running. Well, after 50 mm of rain over the last two days, we went for a walk in the freezing cold this morning, and I cocked my head, was that the sound of trickling water I could hear? Yes it was, at last!
This is the uppermost section I dug out.
