Rainy Day In My Garden

It started raining yesterday morning, and came down quite hard through the day and night. Lots more rain is in the forecast, surprisingly enough! I decided to take a walk before it really started to come down, and then wandered through my yard. I live in a mobile home in a senior community (55+) with a lovely garden area on three sides. I’m so lucky as most homes here have nothing but concrete around them. The yard was just dirt and weedy grass, no planters, no plants, nothing, when I moved in at the end of 2015. It’s been such fun designing the garden layouts, choosing plants, doing the work. I decided to use a beach decor throughout my home and as best as possible, in the garden, too. I named my home Hastings Cottage (check out my blog’s home page for the name’s back story). It’s perfect for me and I love it.

The colors and variety of plants, all sparkly with raindrops, were so pretty I took some pictures with my phone. I think looking at flowers is a nice break from the craziness that is our world currently. I hope you all remain safe and healthy. ~SueBee
