It's Raining!

What a fantastic day it was yesterday! It rained & rained most of day & by the time I went to bed last night we'd had 48mm. - hooray! I woke a couple of times to heavy rain showers thundering down on the roof, it was a wonderful sound. This morning all the birds in the garden are almost deafening us with their happy noises & the plants & trees looked so refreshed. Just as it was starting to rain yesterday, MOTH pulled me over to our Living Room window & silently pointed outside. A shallow puddle had formed on one of our garden paths & a little Willie Wagtail was splashing around in the water, washing all the hot dry Summer's dust from it's feathers! Life is good again.


  1. I always sleep so soundly when it rains, like a constant hum on the roof.
    gorgeous picture!

  2. Isn't the sound of rain on the roof the most wonderful and luxurious sound in the world, especially in these dry times we live in. Enjoy!

  3. Nothing like a nice rain to refresh everything! We should be getting some rain this week... but for today it is a glorious sunshiny day for my baby's birthday!
    LOVE that photo!

  4. Hooray! Hope you get even more. Bet all the Firefighters are jumping for joy.

  5. Should I stop doing my rain dance or keep going? I posted a response on my post for you. Heidi

  6. How wonderful for the Willie Wagtail to have a little bath.

    Trying to get kitchen story together between meetings and work!!!!

    Yes, we are still friends, Millie,

  7. Nothing beats the sound of rain on your roof (especially if it's a tin roof). We haven't had as much rain here in Melbourne, but we have had some, and it's been a blessing.

    Also, just wanted to thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog post about my dog - such sage advice. Lee x

  8. Hi Millie,

    It has to be the loviest sound hearing the raindrops on the roof at night and you are tucked up in bed.

    I love the photo of the raindrops on the pretty flower.
    Beautiful photography.


  9. The rain must be such a huge relief after those soaring summer temperatures. Enjoy the puddles dear Millie, xv.

  10. It's been wonderful hasn't it? I've got a tin roof, so it was lovely to hear, and so wonderful for our long suffering gardens.

  11. “Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain” - Oh how poetic! ;) Shan xo

  12. I am so happy that you have had the rain, maybe the fires will stop now.
    We have had 2 constant days of rain here as well and what a welcome sound on our tin roof. It is like a switch...Autumn is here!

  13. Oh I miss the rain! It's so soothing and I love how the birds sing afterwards, as you described.

    So glad you got your rain Millie!

  14. Hi,I'm so happy for the rain, so the fire will stop now, WONDERFULL!!! Kiss Mate

  15. Cool it's raining. Just hope not much. Just hope Victoria get some drops more than Qld should. SOmetimes, it's unfair, huh!

    Passing by to let you know am thinking of you, as always.

    hugs for a wonderful Thursday!

  16. I'm so happy that you're getting that much needed rain- I hope it gently rains, soaking in for as long as you need it!

  17. I am so glad .What a relief . Hope you will get much more.
