And The Rains Came

We have been deluged with rain  these first few days of July, buckets of the stuff......unrelenting and soaking everything in sight.
The creeks and streams are filled to capacity.
The wind was horrendous, and created havoc, today the sound of chainsaws  filled the air, cleaning up all the broken tree limbs and even large trees.
The temperatures have lowered to an almost perfect summer day.
A little bit of peace and serenity, in an otherwise chaotic world.

I miss my Tennessee and Kentucky!!! I get to go home next week. I'm in Texas with no end in sight of 100 degree days and no shade or rain. I LOVE the flowing creek...I'm going to pretend I'm sitting out there with my feet in it! Glad you're home is safe!

Isn't that funny how you are getting the rain and we are not and it is hot. I go back to the farm tomorrow to see if my plants have been watered. I am afraid. Beautiful creek. What would it be called in England?

I always love that sun, blue sky and calmness the day after a storm!
Hope you didn't loose any trees!

I am new to the blogging world and I just discovered yours. I, too, live in Tennessee (born and raised) and have been amazed at the storms we have had over the past few days of July! Lots of flooding also BUT the flowers and gardens are loving it! I look forward to reading more of your posts.

Very hot and "heavy" up here.....
And did you know just how prophetic your words were about the chaotic world in which we live? God help us all.

I love that babbling creek! How sweet. And the rain can top now, right? :-)

Since moving here to Florida, I have been relieved that there have been no big storms yet.
After a week or two of unrelenting sunshine, I am actually pleased to enjoy a grey cool day but not big winds, thank you.

I was in Crossville, Tennessee once .. for about a week. The circumstances were not great but the people were, and the place was breathtaking in its natural beauty.
