A Single Sunny Day

We’ve had a very rainy week.  Not just a light sprinkle here and there, but some honest to goodness soakers.  My husband calls this month “Junuary” (January weather in June).  The sun came out Wednesday, however, and we emerged from our cozy den to enjoy it.

LuLu likes to play in the sprinkler.  You’d wonder why we had to turn the sprinkler on between the rain showers, but we have newly reseeded patches in the lawn.

This seems to be as good a way as any to dispose of the weeds…

When will summer arrive?  I hope you’re staying dry and enjoying your weekend.  Wally and LuLu send their love.  Take care!

  1. I love the photos of your 2 kids enjoying the garden. Is that your azalea behind them in the first photo? It's gorgeous. It rained here yesterday too, but though the sun was out this morning for a wee while, it's hiding in the clouds now. I'm just about to take my two girls out for their walk before the rain comes back on.

  5. We could use your rain. It has been dry here & HOT all week. Today is going to hit mid to upper 90's. Your photos are so beautiful. I really wish you would send them in to dog calendars. They would be picked in a minute! Then everyone could enjoy them!

  6. OMG is it ever lush on the Southern Oregon Coast, but we could sure use some sun breaks. Not that the dogs mind. TFS

    Love and hugs back to LuLu and Wally. Your garden is looking healthy and beautiful. So do the pups.

    We’ve had a few torrential downpours this spring with flooding in the Metro (subway), basements, and underpasses. The most recent of which was yesterday. Of course, these deluges are accompanied with spectacular thunder and lightning. Mother Nature puts on quite a show.

  8. Oh for some rain! We are now in the three digits for the remaining summer/early fall. But... we are approaching the monsoon season with it's beautiful billowing clouds each day and ground to cloud lighting shows at night. We hope we'll see more rain with this monsoon season than last year. Your garden looks lovely and Wally and Lulu are adorable. Hugs to all of you this beautiful Saturday.

  11. All that rain makes for a lush garden, I wish we could get some here, really need it badly to help put out the fires in the Gila! The fires are a hundred miles or more away, but we are still getting some of the smoke! I can't remember when it rained last...we live in the desert region of N. M.
    Your beautiful puppies decorate your garden so wonderfully with the flowers in the back ground! Thank you for sharing these gorgeous photos with us. :))

  17. It sure makes you appreciate the sun shine when you haven't had it in awhile doesn't it. I noticed Peanut was eating some weeds the other day, and was hoping she was ok, that seemed strange to me
