Rain Showers and Morning Glories

Pond
Hello everyone! We had a wonderful summer rain shower yesterday and it cooled off enough for us to sit out on the pack patio in the middle of the afternoon.

Sunflower
Emily's sunflower heavy with raindrops.

Daisy wasn't quite sure what to think of the rain.

But she soon decided that she liked it.

She especially liked catching raindrops.

And umbrellas!

Morning Glories
These next few pictures are for my friend, Jenn. A couple of days ago she asked if I had any morning glory blooms and I said I hadn't seen any yet. There was a surprise waiting for me this morning though.

How refreshing the rain looks. Your morning glories are just lovely. These flowers grow wild in the rain forests surrounding where we live. They brighten the forest as they do your lovely garden! Daisy is adorable. Why do puppies love to catch rain-drops? It's so sweet.
Enjoy the rest of your day,

Look how beautiful your pond is:) and that Daisy is growing leaps and bounds, golden retrievers are so amazing aren't they? I'm surprised you're just getting your morning glories to bloom, with your warm temps down there, they are going to be gorgeous once they do bloom.

Your photo's are always perfect, thank you for the walk in the rain :).

I hope you had a "Wonderful Wednesday"
Kathi :D

Judy said...

How beautiful. I have never tried to grow Morning Glories.
Daisy is getting bigger. We love a summer shower. My children used to go out under their unbrellas too.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Great pictures! Morning Glories are my favorite because they remind me of my grandmother.

I was further south shopping and didn't know about the rain till I got home. But it was a Blessing! We really needed it. Your photo's were fun to see.
Don't forget to stop in today I have a gift for you!
Have a great day.

I love the pond. How lovely and peaceful it must have been to sit out there and watch the rain, the fish, and to watch your children and dog play.
