Wordless Wednesday, first day of summer?

Yesterday the rain continued. I kept thinking, tomorrow is the first day of summer, and look at it. In between rain showers, I walked about the yard, trying to find the beauty in the rain.

No flowers left on the rhododendron, just water on leaves.

A little sun and warmth would help the hydrangea bloom

The ferns seemed to be enjoying the cool wet weather, in fact they thrive in this type of weather.


The daisies have started to bloom, but this poor bee must have succumbed to the water.


So instead of being sad, I did what any crazy woman would do. I put on my flip flops and embraced summer. Even if it was in the rain.

Happily I woke up to sunshine and blue skies. Summer is thinking about joining us!

Your rain pictures are beautiful! I love how you put on flip flops and enjoyed the first day of summer, despite the rain! We are supposed to get rain here tomorrow, but I'm excited because it means that this crazy heat wave will break!

Luvn the water droplets! Ohhh.... poor bee. Speaking of bees, Jax finally got stung, at least I know he's not allergic.)

Cute flops, & pretty toes!
