Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

Precious

To a gardener who's barely received a half an inch of rain in the last 60 days...these water droplets from last night's rainshower are a precious sight.

Yes, those raindrops were precious yesterday!!! The whole world seems to have greened up in one day. We were out of power for three hours, though.

Yay for the rain! We also got rains for the last three days. Garden looks much happier now. I have been busy these days, and everyday handwatering is so tiring for me. Hope we can have more precious rain coming to our way.

Lovely raindrops. We got enough rain to half-fill the rain barrels. Wonderful stuff, but we need a little more.

Come on rain!!! Thought it looked like we were going to get some while I was working outside. Came inside and checked the radar map and was so disappointed. It is all east of here. :(

Wed. night we got a few drops. Thankful for that.

FloridaGirl...It's amazing how the grass will turn green almost immediately after a rain. Wonderful!

Ami...Lucky you getting rain 3 days in a row. It's rumbling here right now, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Daisy...and Yippee!

Chris...Hopefully, next time will be your turn.

NanaK...Hooray!

SiestaSister...Yes, we really can't complain about even a few drops. :-)

Thankful for the rain, too, Susan. Have to remember this in August when it's so humid, because without the humidity there would be no rain, and then we'd be a desert. Wouldn't want that!

Rain is certainly precious to us and our gardens. Glad you got some relief. That rain so many are rejoicing over missed us entirely. When we look at the radar it seems to be everywhere but here. Maybe tonight or tomorrow we'll get our turn.

Lovely droplets you lucky lady! We have had only two inches since last October here in Western Oklahoma. The wind blows all day/night at 30 to 55 MPH... it is indeed an odd year, as though we missed spring and are in late August. Happy Summer Solstice tomorrow~
