Perth’s winter rains started in earnest this month and so far in May we’ve had 143.6mm, significantly more than the May average of 87.6mm. This is a good change after an extremely dry summer.
Last week the autumn rains started in earnest and Perth had the wettest May day in 9 years. This was just in time to soak the bog garden I planted two weeks ago.
