~ ~ Rainy Days ~ ~

Hello dear ones,

It has been raining a lot here, so I took a stroll around our gardens with camera on hand, because I like to take photos of the flowers with water drops on it.  Right now everything is looking so lush.  Love taken photos after the rain, when the colors are so bright and beautiful. Enjoy the tour!

  1. Wendy,
    I loved browsing through all your pictures. Your home is so lovely, and everything is so green and groomed! The flowers pictures made me smile, as flowers are magic to me. And those blackberries! I was just telling my son how funny it is to me that we have to pay so much for them at the store, and when I was growing up, we could just pick them whenever we wanted. Aaahh, the daisies, so sweet.

    Thank you for giving us a tour around your home. I love seeing pictures of houses and front porches. It gives me inspiration for my own home. Happy Fourth of July.


  2. I enjoyed my tour around your garden, you have such a lovely home. I can see myself sitting in the swing on the porch looking out at all the flowers. You did great taking the pictures with the raindrops and bees on them.
    Happy 4th,

  3. I enjoyed all your photos - just darling!!!

  4. Dearest Wendy,
    Wow, is that stream there all the time or just because of the rain? Your garden is LUSH and so green. Your region is lucky for having still apples growing; here, only 4 hours south of you, it is too hot for them.
    We too have had so much rain. Yesterday when we made a garden tour and picked some fresh blueberries, we hardly could walk in the back behind the pond; so soggy on the lawn.
    Let's hope that the 4th of July festivities will not all fall into the water.
    Happy 4th for you and your loved ones.

  5. OMGoodness, Wendy. Your whole yard and setting is just so beautiful. You have really done a lot of work there and it shows! Your rainy day pictures are some of the prettiest I have seen anywhere. I hope you have a wonderful 4th and enjoy your day- xo Diana

  6. Your garden is amazing with all you lovely flowers I'm so glad I came to visit I had a wonderful time in the rain. . I love your cottage in the back ground would love to see more of it.. Happy July with love Janice ..

  10. Sorry, you must be getting our Oregon rain LOL...but I do love your gardens! Those corbels on your porch are beautiful too. They add so much character to the garden.

  11. Dear Wendy,

    I just ADORE your little cottage - you have it done up so sweetly.

    Your gardens are amazing - wow!

    I love the rain too - but not TOO much of it, it's tough on the gardens and lawn big time.

    I love your blog - and wish you a blessed day.

  12. Your gardens are so gorgeous Wendy even in the rain! And, you keep bees!!! I am so envious as I want to eventually do this - when we move one day! I hope you have sunnier days very soon. xx
