Sunday marked another day in a week of volatile weather. We’re getting the rain we’ve needed; but it’s heavy, with thunder and lightning, and all at once! One minute it’s sunny; then it’s dark and gloomy with flashing lightning and sheets of rain; followed by rainbows, sunny, while it’s still raining. August has been incredibly WET in Connecticut!
Still raining, transforming everything into a lush, greenness . . .
Raindrops cling to the tall grass; time to mow again!
The corn has had a nice, long drink. (The long blades are NOT sticking up, which my farmer Dad always said was a sign of lack of water.)
The pumpkins are thriving in all stages: blossom,
One of my FEW, perfect hydrangeas. . .
. . . along with the Rose of Sharon blooms . . .
. . . and the Hybiscus, all enjoy the juicy wetness.
The pool is close to over-full . . .
. . . even the Mermaid seems to approve of all this water!
The only one who doesn't seem to relish all this rain--and the rumbling thunder--is Eddie the Sheepdog!
