a greening

we had such a stretch of dry weather


... it felt so odd ...



but now the rain is back - and things feel right again



"right as rain" is what they say

my tea today?
a cozy cup of bengal spice with a splash of milk
7:30 at night taking a turn through the garden
my little shadow is our Bouvier: Theodore
he's always close by
looking for troublemakers
keeping us safe
:)

So much lushness and green in that photo -- it's just wonderful!

Wonderful photos again Kimmie.
I love to gaze at the sky and am always amazed by its never ending changes...well now I'm not living in the Middle East that is. There it was usually blue or blue!

Theodore looks a handsome beast that knows it!
He's doing a fine job there by the look of it. ;D

I want your garden... it looks so inviting... and neat... pours has taken on jungle proportions... and the tea looks just perfect... tried to work out now you got that shot and almost poured tea all over myself... thinking I will leave the cool angles to you... you are obviously a bit more coordinated than I am...

Theodore is a beauty and so is that incredible garden. Of course, I like the looks of your tea, too. Have a great day, dear Kimmie:

Glad to hear someone is getting rain. That 2 inches we got didn't do much for us, but I'm not complaining. We are still in a severe drought...it will take a hurricane to catch up I'm afraid. Oops, I don't want to say that too loud.
Love Theodore! :)
Happy tea day!

That bit of rain certainly does wonders to green things up. I see you upside down in your cup. Neat reflection. :)

Your yard is so very green and beautiful. And Theodore very handsome. Our weather was anything but lovely today. :/ Have a great week. Tammy

Nancy said...

Your garden looks so lovely and neat :) we have had mild weather with a spattering of rain alomost every day. Things are looking very green and my lilac bush is just starting to bloom---so much later up here!
I have Mother's day gift card for the nursery and I'm thinking of getting a couple more lilacs of different colour and scent :)
Happy Tea Tuesday :)

Beautiful sky and beautiful green grass!! My sky project, well, it took a major back seat.
