"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

God is in the detail...

"Red sky at night, shepherd delight,
 Red sky at morning, shepherd's warning..."


Or so the saying goes.


However, this was our sunset on Monday night...
and this...
... and this was the whole of yesterday...
Reckon some farmers may have been caught out...


Even though our gutters and rain water storage tanks have not been installed on the farm yet, the rain is very welcome :)

Can you send some of that moisture half way around the world. We need a bit here. Make sure it comes in the form of rain and not snow! Beautiful pics. Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic sunset. I never did understand the red sky stuff, but rain is almost always welcome. :)

Dani said...

Diana - That's terrific. Hope you have rain water storage?

Leigh - Nope, me neither LOL think it had something to do with snow type weather...
