Sapphire Showers In My Garden

At last it is raining. It's been a long time that it rained here where I am. I think it is already 3 weeks since we have rain. The soil in the garden is getting dry and I have to water the plants everyday if not twice a day. I still have other plant cuttings to plant and I am happy that it rained now. The weather is so hot everyday and it is more than 30 degrees celcius. A little rain will cool the place. I don't mind if it rains everyday as long as it's not much to make my garden flooded. I don't like that. How is your weather in your side of the world.? Anyway, enjoy your weekend!

Thank you @crazyhorseladycx. Of course I could give a a cutting of this flower if it were possible. It is raining again now. I have taken a nap after lunch and I was awaken by the hazing sound of the wind that came through my window. I think we are having typhoon.

Thank you @crazyhorseladycx. Of course I can give you some cuttings of this flower if it is possible. The weather is getting bad and it seems that a typhoon is coming on our way. It's so windy now and I like the breeze of the wind. Cool for me to breathe in but it's already cold for my Filipino relatives. I am in the Philippines these few months.

We could use some rain. I noticed one of the mums I bought is already drying up. I have to water more often I guess.

I wish a heavy rain will fall in my neighboring country to douse out the forest fires. The forest fires have been creating a lot of problems for us. The haze causes us to suffer from all sort of health problems, and when the condition is very bad, those with asthma cannot even leave the house.

We've had quite a bit of rain lately. I like it because it cools it down outside a bit. We are hoping for no rain for the next few days though as we are leaving on a camping trip.

Did you refer to the weather in the Philippines or in Germany? It is almost raining daily in our place, and it gets cooler too.

The other day the fog here was so thick it seemed as tough it was sprinkling. I would like for it to rain.

I have not seen fog here in the Philippines since I arrived. It's always sunny, dry, humid and hot.
