Wet, but sunny again!

One of the things I love about Florida - just seconds after the rain abated, the sun shines through...

Apres la pluie le beau temps.

Sorry I missed your bottlebrush of a few days ago, of course it is native from Australia and I have a big one in my garden. Love them.

That's why we call it "liquid sunshine" in Florida...

I love the odor outside after a rain. Some great fragrances get released. I hope you get lots of rain this season-as I hear there is a major drought-but no hurricances.

On our premises it is the opposite it rains sometimes after the sun

So "Barry" was not too bad? Good! The garden really looks nice after this "freshening up"!

I hope you get lots like Barry this year, rain but no destruction.

Sun, after rain, it's even more shining. A very beautiful photo of a very beatiful place.

I am glad you all got the rain. We can still use rain but Nature is being stingy with it. Your photograph is really wonderful.

I rolled on the floor, puked, screamed, and passed out. When I woke up the neighbor was gone.

Love the photo - the mist to the right. And the quotation.

My mama always taught me to appreciate the rain.

And the sandy soil sucks the water away. When I was growing up in Louisiana, you might not get to play in the yard for days after a hard rain. Down here, you can get out and do stuff.

A very inviting path in the photo.
