Summer Rain

We had rain today, a gentle-falling rain, the kind where you can use an umbrella without fear of it being turned inside out.
If you listened carefully you could hear the trees and flowers, heaving a big sigh of relief, their roots and foliage drinking in every last drop of moisture.

It is a lovely summer at your home.

We had a really nice rain here in N.C. this week too, Jo. So nice to have a steady, moderate rain which can soak into the ground rather than one of the pounding, gully-washers like we often get in the summer. :) I love your pretty outdoor pictures -- hope you have a lovely weekend.

Hugs,

Denise

Thank you for more lovely flower photos. My favourite? The birdbath full of little mauve flowers - such an imaginative shot.

We've got the possibility of rain, too, after weeks of constant sunshine. It feels nice. Love your pretty pictures. :-)

I am glad the much needed rain arrived. Your gardens are so beautiful. We are so much later than you in growth. I have yet to see a morning glory. Great post of photos along with a photo of my favorite cat.
