after the rain

Happy first of July.
Yesterday after lunch as we were mowing and weeding storm clouds gathered and gave us marvelous views of the approaching storm accompanied by amazing timpani. In less than two hours we received 2 1/2 inches of rain as measured by our gauge. The sun returned and we took a walk in the meadow to have a look.

This is the time of year that beckons you to take several walkabouts each day so as not to miss a single blooming thing. And isn't the light amazing in the late day?


  1. Hello Sharon,

    How lovely to have all that rain, it will be so good for your vegies and flowers. Is that a Blueberry in the last photo? I planted one in a pot last year and had about two or three coming along very nicely and went to pick them and there was only one. I think my son managed to get to them before me.
    Enjoy the weekend.

    happy days.

  2. If I lived in a meadow I am sure I could find happiness in every day! Your plot of land has certainly come a long way from your first days at the farm. The dividends of your hard work have paid off well:)

  3. Everything looks so fresh and new after the rain! And I love the smell, too. Your lush gardens are so beautiful!
