Dill Drops

Some people have complained that we have had too much rain this summer .. and OK .. I'll admit we have had more than what is normal for us .. but me complain ???? No way .. the rain has saved my garden from my terrible neglect. Things have popped up that have taken so much attention and energy from me that if it had not been for this gift of rain I'm sure I would have lost a few plants at the very least and certainly the garden would have looked so SAD. Even the potted plants have benefited .. this amazing 'dill tree" (ok .. pushing the tree description a bit) but it is huge and so interesting especially after the rain when the droplets are still hanging like ornaments on a Christmas tree .. good grief .. no !! I'm not pushing Xmas .. now Halloween is another matter .. that .. I PUSH !!!
In any case .. I just liked this pictures and thought that other dill overs may find them entertaining too ?

cool pics - Pickled Rain

I'm not going to complain about all the rain we had this year after last year's heat and drought. It's cut short many of my work days and that's always a good thing. And the wildflowers have 'worshiped' the rain and offered up some fantastic blooms this year.

Only 77 days to Halloween :)

Dear Mr. WiseA** : )
You are the only one that 'got it!" about the pickled rain .. I had waited and waited and finally a shot in the dark ? LOL
I'm not complaining about the rain at all .. it has saved my garden since I have been so busy with other things .. I'm grateful as the wildflowers are and we have lots that were sewn ? in on the sides of our roads around the city .. makes for such pretty pictures but do I ever take my camera with me like you do ? Tarnation !! .. keep forgetting ^..^
