After the Rain

The rain showers lasted for a short time and then the sun peeked out from behind the remnant clouds.
Everything was dripping with raindrops.
The flowers almost seemed joyous with the refreshment.

Even the porch plants were moved out for a quick drink of rain.
After the rain ceased this fern went back to its pedestal by the door.
This morning brought sunshine, blue skies, and a slight breeze-perfect weather for breakfast on the porch.
This morning also brought new blooms and flowers refreshed.


Once the tea pot is empty and my morning blog visits complete I will get to work on gardens and house stuff:)
Have a blessed day dear friends and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us after the rain...

Lovely, lovely breath of fresh air. It comes through your blog. I am learning so much and my days are full of family, but the peace is what I get from our blogs. Thanks

I so enjoy your blog.
What lovely flowers.
The other night we went to Topeka, Ks and the smell after the rain was so refreshing. Luv it.

Will be putting the Tea Party Button on my site this week-end. Looking forward to the Party!

Bless you,

Hi Kim,

Doesn't everything look so great after a rain shower.
The flowers and plants look so wonderful after they are refreshed and clean.

Love your pretty porch and it must be a lovely place to sit.

Hugs

Wow those two last flowers are so exotic looking. What are they, the yellow one looks kind of like an iris.

Oh, such beautiful pictures! There is something pretty about "just after the rain", isn't there?

Sometimes we seem to complain about the rain, but when we think of how much the flowers, the gardens, and the lawns benefit from it, we sit back and say, what a beautiful world we live in!

Thank you for the pretty pictures of the flowers and your tea tray - it's so inviting! :)
