Since last Friday, the rain has been falling. It sneaks up when we are working outside, it falls fast a furious and creates rivers running off the hill, it makes mud and deep puddles that leak into my boots....but it does give us blessings. Blessings of beauty. My pumpkin and squash plants have been growing slowly, but now with all the rain, they are about to take over my house! Please enjoy these pictures. I just find Mother Nature so beautiful.
