Rain


I love it when the clouds water the garden for me!
They even filled the bird bath!
And see that green leafy plant?  That's my
butternut squash.  It doubled in size since yesterday.
I think it likes the rain, too!

  3. Clouds do all the hard work
    If they could mow too it would be a perk

  5. B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. One of my most favorite things to ever watch is rain hitting water....pond, lake, ocean, mud puddle or birdbath! Love them all.

  8. I love it when there is an overnight rain. It seems to me, that's the way it should be.

    1. I do agree! A few years ago we had the perfect summer. It wasn't overly hot and about twice a week we would have a rain shower in the night. I only watered the garden twice that season. It was strangely perfect. haha.

  9. We had the biggest storm and rain last night, probably the biggest I have seen since we did live in Canada. It took me three attempts to get Montik to the garden for his night wee ... haha. I love storms though. The thunder, the lightning, the smell of the rain ... :-) happy weekend Betsy!

  11. What are those green glass thingies on your garden table? I've been meaning to ask for ages.

    1. They are vintage glass insulators. They used to be on top of telephone and electric poles to insulate the power lines connections. Now they are just collectible things. And this is my bird bath! I just have the glass sitting in it to look pretty and it gives the birds something to rest on.

    2. Oh OK. I think in this country they were all white ceramic.
      Thanks!
