How lucky to have rain. Your flowers look beautiful in the raindrops.
Rain, glorious rain! I'm sure this is a welcome sight. Thirsty trees and flowers are happy.
Oh what pretty pictures. I bet you were doing a happy dance after even if you weren't doing a raindance before.
that is what we have, too. I am enjoying the change, but by January, I will probably be over it!!
well, it is probably about 56 here in the northwest but it is finally raining and that makes me so happy. we had about 9 weeks or more without any rain this summer. ugh.so i am sharing in your feelings about the rain today.
The last decent rain we had was back in April or early May, so along with so many others, we have a long, hot, dry summer. It isn't a local phenomenon, either, is it? We do feel lucky, and I do think that the trees and flowers are even more grateful than I am. They seem to have done a rain dance themselves, nodding and swaying and swooping over. A toast to all of us who wanted and needed rain and who are finally enjoying it! (Oh, I really wish I had champagne...I'd make Mimosas for all of us!)
Mmmm, send me one of those Mimosas too. We had some of that rain a few hours ago. Nice and hard and steady, then gone. It's now a nice overcast 75. This is the first summer I recall in ages that we didn't burn up and blow away. A remarkably green summer.Is that red agapanthus? I've never seen any but the blue and white. Lovely.
We really still need rain and it is threatening to come down. It has been a very long dry summer here.
Jane Ann, I'd much rather have a Mimosa than plain champagne; consider that fresh bubbly divinely orange refreshment on its way! No, they are plain, old-fashioned spider lilies, but they look more elegant in the rain.Debra, I hope the rain has blessed you there in dusty Texas!
We did getsome rain here in San Antonio. It has been wonderful!
Did you say plain, old-fashioned spider lilies? They look beautiful I don't think I have ever seen any. A few raindrops can turn something very ordinary into a work of art. That's nature for you. I'm glad you have had some rain. We have had rain today as well and more forecast tomorrow, but that's nothing new in the UK.
Deb, and a Mimosa for you, too! To rain after drought!Margaret, a lot of people consider spider lilies "old folk's flowers" - not inappropriate in my case. They are easy, but such a bright splash of color at this time of year. Raindrops do embellish the ordinary, don't they?
Good to hear from you!
