Rain...what rain?

This morning, when I looked outside, I was so happy...there were some ominous looking rain clouds in the sky and they were headed my way....yippeeee!!!
 Yessss.....finally....rain at last...rain at last!!

I watched in total was such a long time since any raindrops had graced my garden.
This was the worst drought we had had in years, and the rain was a welcome visitor.
Then some clouds blew in from the sea and more rain fell.

The veggie garden was elated.

Then in two twos it was all over....... if it were a dream.

The sun came out bright and HOTTTTT........

........and stayed that way for the rest of the day.

Talk about a tease.


  1. I thought it was going to be like that here this morning (just a tease of a few drops) - but we got more later! :)

    1. Guess what, we had some decent rainfall early this morning which actually left puddles on the ground.

  2. We have had rain like that too this year but at least we are not in a drought, we had one for several years and it was so wonderful when it would rain, so I totally understand your joy. Hope you get more!

    1. I think I may have to learn a rain dance soon....we did have some rain today, and I was overjoyed.
      I hope we get more too!!

  3. No drought here I have to say although there's been a lot more cloud and mist and mugginess than actual rain for a while.

    1. This is the worse drought we have had in years...with the water levels quite low in the reservoirs.
      Luckily for me I'm attached to the water system from the desalination plant, but a few of my friends in the countryside are experiencing water outages.
