IT IS RAINING---at long last...I guess my rain dancing worked rotflol!! ;--)))

AND ABOUT TIME---it has been so dry here....

Our trees have begun their Autumnal  change.......already--very early for us here on the

"...in September, in the rain...."

And one lone marigold has survived this heat wave.....I L O V E marigolds!!

AND my ferns are loving this rainy weather.....

and here is my clematis blooming   ....

Isn't this lovely??  And it has a great light scent as you brush by it....

We are so thankful for this rainy weather here....our lawn has burnt to a crisp and my basil and parsley are being eaten by some bug that likes hot and humid weather.....

I hope you are enjoying this cooler spell....

Tomorrow is cleaning day for us;
Friday, 9/11 is our 50th Wedding Anniversary --but on Saturday we will be celebrating  with friends and family--my children and their spouses are hosting....we get to sit back and enjoy!! So looking forward to a happy gathering-----
