Tut-tut, it looks like rain

Like that would be something new. We're expecting more rain mid-day today. I think the drought they've been talking about for the last nine years is officially over. Water tables are above normal and the ground can take no more. Reservoirs are full. Rivers are flooding here and there.

Think happy thoughts. A pink-orange rose in a neighbor's garden. The background is actually the overcast sky.

I hope my newly planted tomato seedlings don't drown. And I hope our roof doesn't leak (and it shouldn't, unless there is a particularly strong downpour). We will be on "alert status" through the day, ready with the plastic tarps and buckets, just in case.

  6. Great photo of that beautiful rose. It's really thriving on the sun/rain combination you've been experiencing. It seems a very "hardy" plant. (Ton amie la rose t'a dit quelque chose ce matin? )

  7. I guess we are all in the same boat - rain,wind, heavy fog and the mercury going as a yo-yo.
