Precious rain and clouds that make you wonder ..

We have been blessed by the rain fairy ? twice this week ... and cooler temps this morning .. how good can it get ? .. But, we are not out of the woods yet .. there are more days of heat and humidity still to come but the fact that I know it is wrapping it up keeps me closer to sanity ?
Then it is off to the races to do those chores in the garden .. but in cooler weather I think I might just survive them ... unless my back complains ... there are always a few "unless" items on every list ?

Too refreshing to believe after our summer from hell, right ? aaaahhhhhhhhh !

It starts softly ...

Then it ends softly ... you can even see very muted colours caught by the camera.
I saw a shooting star this past week .. and it was amazing ... more on that in another post !

Happy SWF Joy. We too have been having some rain. YAY. I love to see those holes in the clouds. It is like looking into another world.

We got that wonderful soaking of rain on Tuesday but missed out on the rest that you got. But tonight and tomorrow it is supposed to rain again. Yipee!!

The rain was good, we had it too. It actually was muddy in some sections of the garden! I am looking forward to pumpkins.

Such gorgeous photography! I can never get good pictures of the clouds! Love the water droplets on your Solomons Seal, so pretty. I'm starting to collect my tulips to plant in October. I buy them a little at a time so the expense doesn't hit me all at once. I will start preparing the soil for them as soon as we get some cooler weather (and I buy some soil amendment:)). Hope you're having a great day! I love your blog!

Joy, so beautiful are the clouds, the light ray go through them, the only rain you need. And we do not need it more!

Leslie thank you so much : )
I do exactly what you do except this year I bought a BIG bag of daffodils at Costco (90 bulbs for about $21) I will be planting them out front since they don't mind a bit of shade etc .. I can't wait to get the garden squared away ! LOL

You are so lucky to have some rain. We need it desperately here too. We have fires all around us and the smoke is terrible. They are not in town but in the mountains that surround us. They say the smoke won't be gone till it rains here.
Glad you are getting some rain there. Hope it continues for you!
