Rrrrrrrr-umble. . .BANG!
I didn't see it, but I did hear the thunderstorm sometime after midnight. I was quite happy not to see the flashes. FLASH!
It has been raining. Glorious, glorious rain. And, if the weather guys are correct, it will continue to rain until Thursday. Knock on wood.
During a not-raining lull this morning, Molly the Cat and I ventured into the backyard to see how things are holding up. Our raggedy back fence heartily stood up to yesterday's wind. Whhhheeeeeeeewwwwwh. . .
Molly was busy sniffing out what she probably hoped would be wild animals while I shot photos. We are so different from the Mama who would've swept as many leaves as she could before she decided it was too muddy and cold to be outside.
By the way, did you find Molly among all that green stuff? In the photo up there, that is. Yes, the path was once clear and free of leaves. :-)
And, look, here. A rosebud! The Mama's spirit continues to shine in her rose bushes.
I'm linking up All Seasons, a weekly meme hosted by Jesh at Artworks from JeshSTG. To check out the other participants or to join up, please click here.
Very nice - the hope of roses!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Carol. :-)Delete
Meow!!! That is One Lovely Rose.ReplyDelete
Great rosebud! It's great to see color in your winter months. The good news is--winter isn't forever :)ReplyDelete
I don't mind the winter. Well, as long as I'm out in it.Delete
I hear California is taking quite a wholloping. May you stay high and dry, including Molly's tailfeathers. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Widders. Molly and I went outside again this morning to splish-splash.Delete
Hi Susie ~~ Nice to have you visit and for me to be here. I miss your nice Alphabet posts. We have just started with Teresa again.ReplyDelete
Molly is a nice cat, I think she has found a mouse burried under those leaves. I saw on TV that you are almost getting too much rain for the moment. I hope it breaks your drought. Also the TV showed some flooded vineyards near Napa.
Stay dry!!! And please come back to visit again. I am writing and posting pictures of things we found during our South American cruise. We left LA on Dec 4 and pulled into Rio on Jan 4.
Am posting the cruise SA stuff on both blogs, "Jim's Little Blog" and "Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place."Delete
Hi, Jim. More rain is on the way, I hope. I didn't see the TV coverage but friends have told me about it. The flooding is in the usual places. It's been a while that people have forgotten or never knew about what lot of rain does in our area. I am glad I don't have to drive around in it.Delete
I do see Molly and I love that picture of the rosebud. It is so clear...excellent photo. We are expecting a storm overnight with snow but then changing to rain so a real blecchy day tomorrowReplyDelete
Hey Birgit! Will this be our normal? We shall see. I think climate change has much to do with the extreme weather in our world. Of course our new leader don't think so.Delete
Dearest Su-sieee! Mac; We did have a heavy rain this morning (which was a good one for us :-) what a GORGEOUS rose bud♡♡♡ From seasons♪ReplyDelete
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*
Thank you, Miyako. Right back to you.Delete
Love the valiant rosebud still hanging on for dear life. And I spied Molly right away. I'm glad for your rain.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sallie. It's one of several in the front and back.Delete
Rosebuds ...already? Am envious! Yeah, it has been kind of stormy and rainy too, here! Still though I enjoy the rain, because we are in so much need of it! Many thanks for sharing the beauty that your Mama shines through with ALL SEASONS! Have a beautiful week:)ReplyDelete
I was surprised to the see rosebuds, too. We're in for some blue skies, but I hope more rain is on its way.Delete
