Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Hello Julia

Royal Choral Society Sings the Hallelujah Chorus


We got rain yesterday. Wonderful, beautiful, lovely, soft, wet rain.











I ran around outside -- in the rain -- and took pictures. Then I came in and listened to it beat on my roof.

Bilbergia 'Hallelujah' flowering -- how appropriate

  1. So I hear you saying you're happy about the return of the rain? What a relief to not worry about dragging the hose all over the garden (except down to the greenhouse.) Holly how ya! Er, Holler back girl. Whatevs. Happy precipitation.

    1. Not to mention I can start planting again, and it makes pulling weeds easier.

  2. Evan was carrying on yesterday about the rain as well (Facebook), we got a light sprinkling over night but not enough to even wet the pavement under a tree.

    1. What a bummer for you -- at least I think it is, I know you mourn the end of summer. We had a few little sprinkles like that in August, but yesterday was pretty much an all-day rain.

  3. So nice when it's not a gusher and you and the plants can enjoy it. That Billbergia is a knockout.

  4. I'd be singing Hallelujah too! I can't carry a tune to save my life but I think I'd at least get that word right. Our best hope for our first rain is still more than a month away.

  5. We've had a bit of rain here in the dark hours, but it's pretty much dried off in the daylight, so no lovely raindrop photos for me yet.

  8. What fun to listen to that wonderful music while enjoying your raindrop filled pictures. I'd like to singing that song too - maybe if we get some side effects from Florence.

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
