And don't get me wrong, I love the rain! After living through the last 3 years or so in an extreme drought, losing plants and wishing and praying for rain, I'll never look at that glorious wet stuff the same way again! But it's nice to have a dry day in between sometimes! Just this morning we've had this much rain . . . . .
almost 1 1/4 inches! Just this morning! And it's not over by a long shot because when I looked at radar a while ago, there's a line of thunder storms all the way across Alabama, Mississippi and into Texas, and they are all headed in our direction. This is how my pond, um, sidewalk, in front of the house looks right now as I write this >>>
And this little mulch-filled pond is actually a flower bed. And beneath that black pipe in the bottom of the picture, there is a deep hole filled with gravel to take water from the gutter and pull it away from the flower bed, but - trust me here - it's full, and there's nowhere for it to go!
And this one, well, it's just standing in water because everything is saturated and there's nowhere for all this water to run off to! I will tell you that the little green spike there is a blazing star, related to hibiscus, and they just LOVE lots of water, so she's a happy, happy camper!
And there were spots of blue in the cloud laden sky!
