It Rained!...

We FINALLY had some rain.
Six inches of rain!

We really, really needed it.

It made everybody happy.

The planter we made in this old fountain,
was happy.  

The Periwinkle loved the rain.
It loves the heat, too.

The Plumbago is beginning to really bloom.
They love the heat, too.
And, a little water from heaven doesn't hurt.

Even the Prickly Pear loved the rain.

We're heating back up,
and we have a whole lot of sun.

But, it was nice while it lasted.

Hope you're having good weather,
wherever you are.

Happy Gardening...


  1. You did get a good soaking and your flowers certainly appreciated it. The planted fountain is a good idea. So much less work. We only had 2" but were very happy for it. Where did it go? It refreshed a few plants that were on deaths door but its benefits seem to be quickly forgotten. And now back to summer again.

  2. We've gotten quite a bit of rain the last few days too. A little over an inch this weekend and then a bunch last night, but I didn't check the rain gauge on my way out the door. Such a blessing in the summer.
