I did manage to take a few photos before the heavens opened.
I'm very lucky to live so close to this amazing park founded by Sir Henry Parkes, the stern looking gentleman you see above.
Notice the threatening skies?
Even the dogs were looking noticeably windswept.
For a split second the sun came out to illuminate the calla lillies then just as quickly disappeared again. Is summer ever going to arrive in Sydney?
I'll try popping back later in the week with a sneak peek of what's in store for you every day next week. It's a bit of a Christmas baking bonanza.
So until then,
