A wonderful Storm

This winter so far has been very dry with only a couple light rains to water our plants.

This morning when I woke up I did so to the roll of thunder and lights flashing in the grey sky.. rain falling from the sky in lrge drops splashing to the already flooded ground..

The cat was perched in the window watching the rain fall with small interest, the chickens were huddled in the corner of the coop looking around frantically not sure what this noise and wet was all about. This is the chickens first thunderstorm and they don't seem to be enjoying it.

The gardens though unlike the rest of the yard were drinking up this rain with utter delight and the sight of the rain bouncing off the leaves of the turnips, lettuce and bok choi was very beautiful and intrancing...

The rain has slowed for the time being and I have to hurry and get to work! Hope you all have a wonderful day!!


  1. This post gets me excited for gardening! We are in CO, so gardening in Winter doesn't work...however we are going to try some window boxes this year and get some lettuce going in Feb or excited!

  2. Thanks Hip Momma! Let me know how the window boxes do : )

  3. That was definitely some rain storm! My poor bushes don't know whether to dry up or turn green again!
