Rain, rain, we need you. 
Do come again and water our flowers.

Taking photos after rain is my favorite photo taking time in the garden.

A broken birdbath that I placed a perennial in.

 Butterfly bush  now coming into full bloom.

Thank you all for you thoughts and prayers for Joe.
Our doctor just called him and she wants him to have a MRI .
 He is still in pain but medicated well enough.

joy and peace
