Day 1013


It's raining today, but I don't mind at bit if it will wash this dreadful pollen away for a minute.


And if it gives my pansies a respite from the heat and perks them back up.


And if it coaxes the irises, the azalea, and the lilac into bloom.


Lord, thank you for the rain! It's just what we needed.

Do you know the paint color of that 2nd picture (bedroom). We are painting our bedroom this summer and I want to do a soft gray/grayish blue I think. I like that one!!

Love these images (and glad the day was back in the title of your post)!

I was thankful to wake up to the rain this morning--- hopefully the yellow will wash away!
