I just returned from an early morning walk. I enjoy walking first thing in the morning while it’s still cool and fresh outside. I may zip out with hubs for a quick walk around our lane later. We had about 7 thunderstorms with lots of rain yesterday, after I don’t know how many weeks of straight sunshine. We may get more today. Our lawn and flowers are already looking beautiful again! I don’t mind rainy days when they make my yard so pretty. Do you?

I love cozy rainy days and how the garden and yard perk up from the rain.

Good for you! I am hoping to be able to walk also soon if I am able to wake up earlier than my normal. The weather is quite hot here when it is past 7am

It does get pretty hot here later in the morning, especially when it's humid. I come home dripping! However, I'm healthy and don't worry about the heat and humidity. It makes me feel good to sweat it out.

@m_audrey6788 It really looks so much better with most of the brown, burnt out by the sun patches gone.

@CarolDM Our son just stopped by with some marigolds for us. We were outside gabbing when the thunder started again. When it began to rain, he scooted.

When it rains, it saves me from a big chore of watering my terrace garden.And it has been raining a bit everyday. So I have not watered the garden since the beginning of June And I love that lush green garden early in the morning

We haven't had a drop of rain all of June until the last two days. My husband does the watering, but we have too much lawn and gardens to get it all done in one day. We should have put in an irrigation system, but too late now.

@DianneN Yes..watering a big garden can be tedious. We have a small terrace garden but with my step gardening and good space management, it hosts around 130 pots.

Wow, beautiful, yes true rain or water from the heaven up high, makes all the plants alive. Trees, flowers, vegetables and grasses they grow nicely, that is what I observe and I'm thankful if there is a rain, not a typhoon or something heavy rainfall that create flood. All plants needs water and we too. Happy to see the scenery of your lawn. Have a wonderful day always.
