It's Raining--AGAIN

It' raining it's pouring the old man is snoring ---and this the only time that the snoring isn't annoying!!  LOL  We woke up to rain dancing on our rooftop again this morning.  It is such a  welcome sound that it is truly deserving of a blog post two days in a row from one who only seems to manage an erratic post once or twice a month.  :)  My volunteer zinnias are doing a happy rain dance, and my surviving seedlings are joining in.  The birds were so excited yesterday that I had birds all over the yard that I haven't seen in a couple of months, even my regular dwellers here at Ships Landing, like the Finches and Bluebirds.  I think everybody had been on vacation in a place that was a bit cooler and wetter than it has been here this Summer.  :P

Rain!! Splish Splash They Were Taking A Bath

It has rained ALL DAY here at Ships Landing!!!  We have not had this kind of steady, all-day rain in so many months that I can't even remember the last time.  It has been the most wonderful kind of piddling, sorting, blog-hopping, kind of day--and I've loved EVERY WET MINUTE OF IT!,

..."So September comes with a few more harbingers than usual, some of the outriders early with their message. But autumn never comes overnight. It creeps in on a misty dawn and vanishes in the hot afternoon. It tiptoes through the treetops, roughing a few leaves, then rides a tuft of thistledown across the valley and away. It sits on a hilltop and hoots like an October owl in the dusk. It plays tag with the wind. Autumn is a changeling, busy as a squirrel in a hickory tree, idle as the languid brook. It is August ended, October inevitable, summer's ripeness and richness fulfilled in sweet September." Hal Borland's Twelve Moons of the Year
