And again....

We woke up this morning to thunder, lightening and MORE RAIN!! Yea!! I haven't gotten out to do any gardening in the past few days..our lawn needs to be mowed, it's hard to take Allie out in pouring rain, but you will not hear me complaining! I am loving this rain and cooler temperatures.


The flagstone pathway running through the back of our yard becomes a small stream when it rains. I didn't catch this during that part of the storm, but it left little ripples over the stones. You can barely see them.






And, it will take a while for things to drain here, but again...I'm ok with this.






Yes, things will be muddy for a while, but I can deal with mud.

"If you pray for rain, be prepared to deal with some mud" according my little Words to live by for Gardeners by Mary Engelbreit.



Rainy days quiet our world and gives us time to slow down and time to reflect. Thank you Lord for this wonderful rainy day!

There are puddles on my patios this morning, so it must have rained again during the night. It's been such a blessing ... I'm happy that so many of my fellow Texas gardeners are getting rain, too.

Great attitude Linda! I'm always grateful for any amount of rain I can get. It's nice that things cooled off for you too. Just think how lush your garden will be after it's all said & done. :)

Meadowview-Beautiful rainy day pictures. Thank the Good Lord above for the rain. I agree, I think rainy days are perfect for reflection.

It rained last night and has been raining this a.m. so as I was driving to work I got called telling me to stay home. Yeah!!

I love your Flagstone Babbling Brook pictures. Since, we're still in August and the sun will come back with a vengence, I don't think it will take to long to dry out.

Cindy, I am happy for us too! It's been a while since we've had a rainy day here. My flowers are really happy!

Meadowview Thymes said...

pg--I think I can see the flowers growing! :)
Actually, I really do think I see the grass growing--we have got to mow!


Susie--ummmm...rainy day at home! I could handle one of those! Enjoy!


jj--you're right, I know you are right..but this is making me want to make pumpkin bread and burn cinnamon candles! :)

Yippee for rain! I'm glad you're getting some too, Linda.

Meadowview Thymes said...

Thanks Pam--all our flowers are going to be so happy!

I pray you get rain too Cindee! Ours was great! However, the heat has now set back in and it feels like a sauna. Oh well--it's still summer!
