Rain!

Rain, rain, precious rain,
That nourishes fruit and flowers. Gives a breath of sweetened air, that gives many pleasant hours.




Rain, rain, refreshing rain, will make the flowers grow; also will make the garden truck put on its annual show.



Rain, rain, God-- given rain, that falls on just and unjust; Praises to His Holy Name! And thankful be we must.

G'morn, Patsy ~ We are water logged from the melting snow, so I consider these angel kisses.

Happy St Patrick's Day ~
Have a great weekend.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

Our rain weekend was last weekend and today was glorious sunshine, and I was out in my garden.
