When this little girl sits down with paper and pencils her imagination runs wild.
Tahlia Pitkin guides her hands to recreate her hopes and dreams and it centres around a big black cloud that's pouring rain out of the sky.
There is so much rain the dams are full and the grass is growing again. The whole family is wearing a big smile.
"Look mummy, look mummy, it's raining," she says as she proudly displays her drawing to her mother Brooke Middleton.
If only it was that easy to entice mother nature to give her family's barren cattle property in Mingoola, west of Tenterfield, a good soak.
Rain isn't something the five-year-old has seen a lot of in her short life. The family farm is battling unrelenting severe drought and is in one of the worst-hit parts of NSW.
Once luscious pastures are dead and the place looks like a desert. The drought has brought many challenges as the family fights to keep 120 cows alive.
It's a similar situation across NSW with 95 per cent of the state still battling drought.

Ms Middleton, and her aunts Heather and Carol Middleton, have been looking for agistment for their cattle in a bid to hold onto the family's 40-year farming heritage.
"Nobody has ever seen it this bad, even some of the blokes in the area who are in their late 80's have never seen it like this before," she said.
