I captured the rain scene in my camera. There was heavy rain this morning but no winds. That is the kind of rain I really enjoy. It rains for short spells giving me time to stroll in the garden. There is plenty to do out there. Have just sown some flowering seeds ofcourse under shelter as the rain will wash them away if kept in the open. How does your garden grow?
This is the kind of rain I like, short and sweet

@allknowing Is the garden getting flooded?

While landscaping the garden I have seen to it that there is proper drainage and so no flooding.

I have several ornamental and flowering plants in a pot. The backyard soil is not good for gardening due to sand and gravel. Been tried to plant some veggies a few times but didn't grow well, so I stopped.

Unless the soil condition is improved you will not get results. You can have your own compost with wet and dry garbage.

Does it get hotter after it rains where you live? "Cooling showers" don't always cool things down in the summer here.

It is a heavy rain. I don't like rains because it makes everything inconvenient. This year it seems it has rained a lot in my country and some places are flooded now.

What are you growing in your garden this year? That scene looks very restful, but plants need sunshine too, lol. My garden has suffered this year due to first one thing then another. The perennials are making it okay and I did manage to get a few more herbs and flowers planted. Today I had a small handful of blueberries from my blueberry bush, they were yummy. Last year it yielded only three or four berries. I guess it takes time for the plant to mature enough to be very productive.

As I have mentioned in my post we get short spells of rain and so the plants do get sunshine (lol) I mostly grow flowers. I have several fruit trees that do not need maintenance.

That seems to be a lot of water there! It's winter here and we're in the middle of a cold blast coming up from Antarctica.
