Rain - Finally!

Last night we finally had a rain shower. It had been weeks since my garden had gotten a soaking rain but last night was a soaker. A fairly severe thunderstorm blew through about 7:30 and by 8:30 the storm was gone. Today at work, everyone was talking about it because after the shower the sky turned a bright chartreuse, then a red-orange color followed by a rose color. Then the sun went down. Following the rain the temperature dropped drastically so it was a perfect night for sitting outside and enjoying the summer evening. The only thing missing were fireflies but maybe they will join us next time.


  1. Oh I hope it's coming our way! My poor lawn is brown and crunchy. So much so that my neighbor asked me today if I needed help turning on our sprinklers. I smiled and said no thank you. I just can't see pouring money into the ground.
    Anyway, I'm glad you got some! And what a gorgeous photo! Red skies at night, sailors' delight!

  2. Very beautifull picture! In Europe, it doest stop raining! I would like to bring you some rain for your garden :) (au fait, je suis fran├žaise ;-))
