Will it? or won't it?...............O! IT DID!

Well it does look like it might!
We have had so little rain this year and last that every drip that falls from heaven is such a wonderful blessing however many times it looks like it may rain but then it doesn't but you never know today it may.
It is in all directions around us North, South, East and West.......but will it fall right here? I think I will go say a little prayer, I truly do not want much just enough to wet my garden and to give my little part of this earth a little drink.

Over the top of our house my gosh here it comes Whoopee! I think we are going to get a little rain, yes I do!

And here it comes I had to run to the back porch so as not to get the camera wet it just came down so quick and so hard.....................thank you! thank you!

This is a picture out my side gate look at all that great wet!!!! :o)

It feels so cool and so nice and wet, a true blessing! from the heavens.

Thank you to everyone who left a lovely comment on my last post about friends and my mothers art.

Can you hear in my words a smile of friendship for you all.

Now I must go and touch this days blessing again "the rain"

This is a wet Friday evening how nice is that!!!!!

Oh, I hope it is still 'tipping down' as they say in England. How I long for good rains to rejuvenate my beloved State of Victoria.

Although it is sunny and cool here today, that could change any minute. We are excited that Spring has come to Idaho, but we still have more weather coming. My Son-in-law is about a hour away snow skiing. The apricot tree has bloomed and my Tulips are almost ready show their colors. The Birds are eating hardy out of my feeders, and I love to hear them sing. Have a nice weekend.

PEA said...

So my rain dance worked?? hehe Oh dear Lee-Ann, I was smiling while reading your words, I could feel how very excited and relieved you are to finally get some rain. Hopefully you'll get more, I can't even imagine how parched it all is over there! xoxo

Oh dear Lee-Ann, the snow here melted so quickly, my poor garden is drowning. Would that I could send you sonme of this liquid gold that you so badly need.
Balance would be a good thing wouldn't it..?

Hi LeeAnn,
Just back from our brief getaway and am now visiting a few dear friends. I was so happy to read of your rainstorm. What a blessing and prayers were answered!
So happy for you!!

Val said...

Isn't it wonderful!!!! We've been having good rain over the past 20 hours or so too.

May your rain water tanks fill and plants drink deeply.

we have had quite alot of rain in the past month - our gardens are gorgeous. It is an amazing thing when it rains after a drought - that little bit of rain makes the plants sigh with happiness!
I am so glad that it rained for you - hope there is more to come!

As you may know from my posts this winter, we've had an unusually hard and long winter, with lots of snow that stayed on the ground a long time. Now it's all melted, and they say the snow in the mountains is melting too quickly to take us through the summer with enough water. But it has been raining all day and all night here, which is very unusual, and very wonderful. I'm glad your prayers were answered - and what great pictures!

meggie said...

Lovely rain!! Yay! we are having some here today in our corner of the world! And it looks as if it will last all day. And it is much cooler, which is lovely.

Jeanette said...

Hi Lee-Ann.oh glorious rain we need a good few days of rain I dont think you will hear any complaints about it, we got rain early hrs Saturday morning and was gone by midday. the lawns all looking green again.

Gina E. said...

Glad you got it up there too. Ken and I were wondering about you. Doesn't it SMELL wonderful when the grass comes up green the next day? Denise and I walk through our park in the morning after rain, sniffing in the freshness and taking deep breaths all the way along!

Hope all is well.
Have a great week.
Take care, Meow

How much did you finally end up getting Lee-Ann? I hope it was an ample amount!! It is awful when you have to sit and watch everything die and you cannot afford to water or you just cannot water at all.
Take care. Thanks for stopping by today. Hubby did get chosen..OOOPS..

Kerri said...
