A Rainy Saturday

Yesterday morning dawned with great promise of getting some much needed tidying done in the garden.

But,alas,the clouds soon gathered,and the sprinkles began.(note to self-that's why they have weather people on the 6 o'clock news! Pay attention from now on!)

So,between the morning showers I played with the camera.
Shadows,lighting,macro,etc................





I think this is my favorite shot..............

In the afternoon,the on and off showers turned to a steady downpour.While sitting on our front porch,watching the rain,under one of the palm fronds,I spied this little guy hiding out from the rain........

This morning,the sun is out,and there's only a 40% chance of rain,today(I paid attention to the weather guy,last nite).




You had to know there'd be a photo of a plumeria,didn't you?


And this little lady has come to live at TheGreatWall........

She looks perfect,sitting on the toilette planter,don't you think?


Now,off to get some much needed tidying up done,before it gets toooo hot and humid.


Hope everyone has a great gardening weekend!

Actually, that was a very good question and if hubby hadn't come home when he did, it could have been an issue! Luckily my mommy always taught me to go before I leave the house! Teehee! Thanks for visiting me!
