Rain Rain Rain


We have had record breaking rain this week , after 2 years of drought, and we have been lucky not to have flood damage like some hills towns. The garden is a little slower to bloom this year as it is wetter and cooler.

The lawn is to wet and boggy to mow this week






Saturday country drive and some wonderful scenery






 Having a good scratch!

  1. Oh how beautiful everything is there. You would not know that you are in drought. Here in So CA we are into our 5th year of drought. I have lots so many beautiful rose bushes and the roses that do bloom are so little. We can now water three times a week, no washing down the driveway's cars, etc. I certainly hope this winter will get a lot of rain.

    Your flowers are beautiful and grass so green, our's is brown.

    the girls look like they are enjoying laying in the cool grass.

    Love your posts Meg and have a wonderful week.

  6. Jetzt wird es bei uns langsam Zeit, an Frühlingszwiebel zu denken und sie einzupflanzen.
    Du kannst deinen wundervollen Frühlingsstrauß jetzt schon genießen.
    Beeindruckende Wolkenbilder hast du fotografiert und eure wunderschöne Landschaft.
    Gott sei Dank, seid ihr von Überschwemmungen verschont geblieben.
    Wünsche dir eine feine Woche,alles Liebe,

  8. Meg, I was hoping that river nearby didn't cause you any damage. By the way, do you use the Panorama option on your camera? I have given it a try but with no success so far. I will have to practise more.

  10. Your girls are so funny laying in the grass! They make me smile every time I see them! Big lumps of feathers and red "crowns".
