One thing about the nonstop rain we’ve been getting lately . . . it does sometimes bring an occasional, quite beautiful rainbow!

It’s been raining pretty much straight for a week now.  Although we have lush, green surroundings, I’m wondering if it’s ever going to stop!

My “Rose of Sharon” bushes have grown by leaps and bounds with all of the rain.

My Begonias have been absolutely crushed by the torrents of rain . . .

Green tomatoes are set and I’m hoping they won’t rot due to all the wetness.

Geraniums (never my favorite due to their “fragrance”) do provide a pretty pink contrast to all the green foliage around . . .

All in all, it’s great weather for ducks, but I could use some sun soon!

Sunday Stroll–Volatile Weather! August 11, 2008

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 only one who doesn't seem to relish all this rain--and the rumbling thunder--is Eddie the Sheepdog!
