Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow

Storms came in last evening.
We received 2.8 inches of rain.
The humidity is high.

The neighborhood is lush.
The trees are so full of leaves the street is shaded.

The Lilies have opened.

Roses and Honeysuckle scent the cul-de-sac.

The clover has rebloomed.

I walked quickly.
I was covered in sweat by the time I came home.
It felt like summertime.

All beautiful - the butterfly was delicate and spectacular.

Beautiful flowers. My rain came during the night, which I wish had come during the day. Would slept better. Oh well, there's two more bear pictures at my blog.

Dear Shellmo,
thank you. I enjoyed reading about your birds on your journal. I think you would also enjoy my other blog, Q's Corner. I post about my backyard birds, bugs and blooms there.
Looking forward to reading more about you and getting to know you.

Dear Cathy,
I am so impressed with your Bear pictures...I also love the fawn.
Storms are coming again this evening for me. We have been in a weather pattern of high winds and rains...
It does feel tropical out.

Your neighborhood is lush and I know you're happy! Send some rain southeast, will ya? I've never seen your gardens so spectacular and I've known you since last spring.

Dear Mary,
My husband and I noticed how lush the neighborhood was on one of our evening walks. I almost think the trees have more leaves than ever before.
There is some damage still from last spring. I lost an ancient Firebush. I am thinking of doing a post about this bush.
Sending rain...bless your hearts.
I have had plenty, more than enough to share.
I feel as if I have known you all of my life!
Thank you dear friend for walking with me. I know you are busy. I appriciate you coming and sharing these quiet times with me.
