Lot’s Of Rain & A Happy B-Day



It rained  all day yesterday and we had thunderstorm after thunderstorm .  It is to continue raining through Friday as well , the weather people predict in total we will get anywhere from 50 to 80 mm and are warning of rivers flooding and flowing fast with the amount of rain we are getting !

Today it is raining very heavily again and the winds have picked up  , the temps have cooled off , some parts of the province are to get hit by freezing rain and a winter storm  Mother nature is really mixing things up this year !

Yesterday I was out on the back porch taking photos of the rainy day .

Spring 2013 (1 of 1)-42

                                             Mr & Mrs Dovey sitting in the pouring rain !


                                      This Dovey was all alone on the other side of the yard !


    Big puddles everywhere on our lawn , it has been raining so hard the water doesn't have time to soak in the ground !


                                  What’s a rainy day with out a Robin or two searching for food !

                                 The water was flying off of this little guy as he shook himself off !


                                                  Sporting a new do ?  The wet look !


                                     Birds love to feed  in the rain ! They get into a feeding frenzy !


                    Even though rainy days are gloomy and dark  I like taking photos of the rain !

                                                April showers bring me  May flowers !

I would like to wish our oldest son David a Happy Birthday today he is turning 24 I will be calling him later .



                                                     Until next time have a good day !

You have certainly had a lot of rain. Not as much here, but today it will be starting as snow and turning to ice pellets and then hours of freezing rain. I can hope they are wrong, but it doesn't look like it this time around.
Happy birthday to your son.

Happy Birthday to your Son he looks young for that age. He reminds me of my oldest Grandson.
Only my Grandson is 17.

Your garden looks great with all my fav flowers you have.

We are in the starting of the storm as the other gal mentioned.

Happy Weekend. Thank you for your nice comment on my sketches.
