A Rainy Day...


Today was a very rainy, gray day in our area.  I headed out into the gardens during a break in the showers...I love taking photos on cloudy days...


 This ground cover is spilling over the stones nicely...


and the first of my roses have begun to bloom!



The showers are so great for the gardens...








So much beauty! 

Until next time...hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  14. They are all so very beautiful, dear Linda, and you are so lucky to have rain....we did not get anything for almost 3 weeks now, and all is so dry, and nothing is fresh anymore...
    Love your fantastic roses.
    Hope your week-end will offer a little sun to you,also.
    Hugs,Dorthe

  18. Your rainy day pictures are just beautiful. We have had terrible winds and were supposed to get rain but the wind blew it away from us at the last minute- Blessings-xo Diana

  19. Such pretty blooms, Linda. And I love the bird house. It reminds me that I have two old ones on a shelf in my garage that I've never put up. I guess I'm still not settled in my "new" house. Maybe next year since the birdies have probably all laid their eggs by now. Have a nice weekend and thanks for sharing your garden with us.

  22. The flowers do look fantastic, and my grass is green as all get out..... but a break between the days of rain would be nice.
