      Yes I keep saying that too. I gardened anyway this afternoon, and now my boots are mostly mud. I really must get some of those dotted galoshes!

    Raindrops make nice photos, don’t they?

    Yep. Back to rain. Thankfully no tornadoes though. Great photo!

      Yes I discovered the dill plants in the greenhouse have gray mold growing on them. Could be I have gray mold on me too, I’m afraid to look…
      Nice to hear from you Grace!

  4. Amazing photo! The subtle peachiness of that tulip is so beautiful.

      The species tulips are my favorites. But these batalini ones are getting crowded out by the native ginger that grows among them. I hope my failing brain can remember to get some more of them for a new location in the fall.

  5. conversely we’ve been praying for rain, and answered today with a deluge. The pastels look even softer with raindrops, Linnie and perfect for a watery wednesday meme too

      Yes water is actually pretty important. On the other hand, a pipe just lost its little cappy thing in my basement and shot out a ton of water. With great panic I found a chair to reach the shut-off valve. So outside rain, inside no water in the house, except for the lake in the basement. Guess I’ll work on my blog 🙂 Thanks for the comment Laura!

    Ahhhh… simply beautiful. I will forever miss living in Oregon. I came to enjoy the damp days and nights. They always included such a fresh fragrance to enjoy. Although I must admit, we’ve had so much rain lately that I think we’re having a weather shift. It’s feeling like Oregon here.

      Yes it seems like everywhere is feeling like someplace else.
      Here in Oregon it feels pretty much like here usually feels — in about March.
