It's raining, it's poring...

Oh my, is it raining here today! The road outside the house has just turned into a river, it's raining so heavily. Thankfully we live at the top of the hill so we won't flood out, but it's still washing away the soil from our newly planted slopping flower bed and flooding the trench we have dug for a path going down the garden. Eeeek! So much water in so little time is not good.

This card from Steppie represents perfectly what I looked like when I dashed outside with a brolly to clean our drain cover in the yard to make sure the water ran down the drain. Cute card!

I'm hoping sometime today the sun will come out and give us a rainbow like this rainbow necklace Cecilia. The sky is too grey and I want some bright vibrant colours and what better to do that than a rainbow?

This beautiful oil painting of a night time city street in the rain is stunning. Sasik's work is so evocative, you can almost smell the dampness and hear the rain hitting the leaves on the trees.

This cloud pendant from Popnicute is nothing like the dark angry clouds we have today. It looks like a fluffy summer cloud with a tiny gentle raindrops that give the lawn a welcome drink of water. Not the torrent we have that's washing away all the soil!

I really wasn't expecting this amount of rain today. If I was I could have got as ready as the people in this photo from Rainwolf have. I don't think I've ever seen so many umbrellas as these in one place before.

We are having a new chicken coop delivered today. I don't think I'll be setting it up today unless this rain stops.
