After The Rain . . .

The Sun!!!

This little sign is nestled among the daisies at the beginning of my garden.
I love it's message ~ so true.

It's hard not to be happy on a day like this. It seemed like with the sun's return everybody in the neighborhood was out enjoying the glorious weather. It was a perfect day for a walk, bike ride, boat ride or even reading a good book in the fresh air.

The bees were happily buzzing along from flower to flower.

I spent my day working in the garden. The weeds came out easily after all that rain and it was also much easier to dig holes in the red clay.

These are the best kind of bunnies to have in your garden.

The hydrangeas are starting to bloom.

Let the bouquets begin!!!


  1. Kim, Your flowers are beautiful.Please keep us in your prayers! Hope you have a great weekend! Blessings, Faye

  2. I'm so jealous of your hydrangeas!! I think I have moved mine around one time to many! It all looks so pretty!


  3. Your garden looks just beautiful! So happy that the sun made a return for you! :)

  4. The added touches that you made to your flower beds and gardens, are so pretty. The little clay figurines with the flowering plants add unique touches of beauty. The pink impatients and the blue hydrangeas are beautiful! Our weather has been perfect here too. Very nice post!!

  5. Hi Kim. What beautiful pictures you have of your garden. I know you enjoyed your time out there. The hard work is so worth it when you are rewarded with that beauty.

  8. Hi Kim ~ your flowers are just gorgeous! I love hydrangeas, but can't seem to get them to grow!


  9. Beautiful blooms! I'm coaxing my hydrangeas along...but it will be a little while until they are ready for cutting. Enjoy your gardens...and the sunshine.

  10. Everything is always so much brighter, greener and wonderful after it rains.

  11. Hi Kim
    That sure was a lot of rain we had!! I still haven't been able to pull out all the weeds and now the mosquitoes are starting to appear! Your hydrangeas are beautiful!
    Hugs, Rhondi

  14. Kim, your yard looks so beautiful! I love the little girls with the flowers in the pot. So cute...Glad you saw the sun!

  15. My yellow flowers are exactly like the ones that you have. The are very prolific. I enjoy mine but they don't last long bloomwise. They come and go early. Be sure and put them somewhere that you will want lots of them:)
