Rain and Thundershowers

The rain and thundershowers we have had for the past several days is preventing us from enjoying our deck.  Believe me, I am not complaining about the rain.  I am so thankful for it!  It looks like I will not be able to participate in the Summer Entertaining Linky Party like I wanted to, so I thought I would share photos of our succulents instead.  I know I have posted about them before, but look closely.  They are doing so well, and I took these pictures in between storms.

I did not realize that some of them bloom!  You'll notice in the pictures that I have put away our cushions.  It has been raining that much lately!  In two of the pictures you can see the pretty sunlight.  It only lasted for about ten minutes.

Until next time...

Blessings!

  7. I don't think I ever realized that succulents grew that quickly. Everything is looking great! Except for the rain I guess. It's been raining here for days in NY also.

  12. Your family is lucky to house plants and all those blooms at home. While we live in a small space in tne city, we are forced to settle with parks and pictures such as these. Thank you for sharing!
