Rain And More Rain !

 

We have had rain on and off since Thursday night and it all has been much needed . Today Papa and I are just puttering around enjoying the sound of the rain and the fresh air and breezes that are coming in our windows . It’s nice to have a back and front porch to sit under whilst it rains and the windows that's under them don't get wet so I can keep them open .

Yesterday there was a bit of a break in the rainy weather so I popped out to take some photos !

                  This butterfly was enjoying the nectar and the water droplets on the flower !

            I just love the look of big puffy clouds with the sun shining on and through them !

                     They have so many different shapes to them !

                   More big puffy dark clouds roll in before another storm !

    Everything has perked up and  is happy now that it all has a good drink of mother natures nectar from the sky’s !

                             Until next time hope you all have a great day !

I'm glad you got some needed rain! I also love how everything looks and smells after it rains when its been so dry--It's 'nature's bliss!' :-)

Wonderful birds and clouds. :) We have to hang a humming bird feeder lower so we can get pictures. Hummers visit our trumpet vines, but are much too high to photograph.

Hugs,
Lois
