During the Wet, the Katherine River floods and Pippa's farm, which is near the river, is surrounded by water. The paddocks flood and the lagoon behind the horse yards fills with all sorts of waterfowl. At the moment it's dry and dusty. They have a permit to pump water from the river and Steve is a plumber so they have a system of sprinklers to water the garden around the house.
The rose bushes are almost as high as the roof. Mel is waiting until they stop flowering before she prunes them but they don't seem to want to stop.
