Well.....not from this cloud.  This cloud happened last Monday.  It didn't drop any rain on us.

But, last evening...when it was too dark to photograph...we had more clouds come through.  We had the thunder, like we seem to have most evenings.  But, this rained.  It really rained.

Well.....sort of.  We had two showers.  Together they added up to .04 inches on our digital rain gauge.  It's been so long since we had any rain at all.  We're very grateful for this little bit.

There is no gutter on our garage.  I put a bucket under the drips, and even though it was a small section, I got a half bucket just with the last shower.  We have to quit stalling and get some rain barrels.

I'm always amazed that no matter how much water you put out from a hose, it doesn't do as much as a tiny bit of water from Heaven.

I hope you all have a great weekend.
If you're in our area, I hope it's a wet one.


  1. I agree, water from sky much better than hose. What a beautiful picture, too!

    My friend Margie found your site through CTG and loves it. I love that!

  2. Thank you, Linda. I'm enjoying this blogging stuff.
    I have to scramble for pictures to post, though. Everything is fried down here.
    I love seeing all the gardens you get to visit on the show. How fun that must be.

  3. Hi Linda, hallelujah! I am so glad you got some rain, any rain is good rain, no matter what some experts say. Rainbarrels are good too. My experience is also that the hose water is not that welcomed by the plants, don't know why. They seem to know.


I love your comments. Thanks for dropping by.
