Rain, rain, don't go to Spain!
Beautiful St. Cecilias, beautiful from all angles. And no, the rain didn't kill their lovely strong fragrance either!
Yesterday was a drippy wet day for us here, but I was rejoicing, I didn't want it to stop. Made me think of the nursery rhyme everyone is familiar with "Rain, rain go away, come again another day, little Suzie/Johnny wants to play, rain rain go to Spain........." No, I didn't want it to go to Spain, I wanted it to remain, so I could play in the rain............again.........(How's that for a variation?!)
Our babe Belle, is she cute or what? (In the background , picture above)Summer rain is indeed beautiful, refreshing and a relief when it had been hot and dry and it felt like nothing was quite right until it rained. The rain showers yesterday brought a breath of fresh air, it was good soaking rain throughout the day and you should've seen how happy my garden was as well.This rain has been anticipated for many days before it finally came and was received with great joy. The temperature plunged while the earth soaked up all that much needed moisture, we even had hail, but nobody minded at all.And these photos below were taken a few days before.
And this rose aptly named "Busy Bee". Time really flies and it's Friday already. I hope all of you lovely readers will have a tremendous weekend, till next time, ciao!
