Today we actually got some much needed rain in the area – between four and six, according to our range gauge on the side of the house. WOW! We have really been praying for some rain because things were starting to dry up and shrivel up around here with the heat and blazing sun. And here it is. Thanks, Tropical Storm Hermine. Right now it’s pouring again and it should continue on and off through tomorrow. The sound of the rain is wonderful to sleep to in my opinion.
I posted this picture even though it’s sort of the opposite of our rainy day. It’s because I am happy with the rain and with our bee work and our life. So even though it’s a rainy day, it’s really a happy sunshiny, sunflower kind of day. This grew in our garden a summer or two ago and the bee is one of our girls, when we had a couple of hives in the backyard. We no longer have them back there but some of them ride home with Mark after he’s visited a bee yard.
