Let it Rain – Welcome to our Jungle

More greener….What was I talking about? (Play Video) Well, it is amazing that just yesterday I was talking to a lady who was watering the plants at the church a block away from our house. Standing about 20 feet away while chatting with her, but still got to talk to someone outside…and told her I was going to go home and do a rain dance. I did and today it has been raining all day! Woop Woop! I haven’t even turned on The Weather Channel in a week. They always says it’s going to rain and it hasn’t, not at our house anyway.

I couldn’t get a good video of the wind chimes today. They were moving a little, but would stop when I started recording. The wind chimes video below was shot during Hurricane Dorian in September and is the sound I was hearing but couldn’t capture. Well, anyway…this is our backyard. A bit overgrown, but with Frank healing from his broken collarbone, not much has gotten done this spring. I suffer from allergies and don’t get to participate in the cutting, mowing and weed eating. He is back to doing some yard work, but hasn’t gotten to the back yet. The front looks great!

I enjoyed listening to the rain coming down, with a light breeze sometimes giving my wind chimes a little ting. Hurricane Dorian made them sing in September. Enjoyable is an understatement!

Frank built the fountain. The birds love it! Carolina Wren and Mourning Dove seen here.

  1. I wish I had space like that full of greenery in front of my house. I would just take a chair, a nice cup of coffee and keep looking at the plants all around me. And wow the rain dance, it would be blissful to have the rain pouring down all around on a hot summer month. The videos itself calmed my mind.

    Best wishes from The Strong Traveller and have a great day.

    • I’m glad I could help. This little rain turned into a tropical storm off South Carolina overnight. It will be short lived as it is making landfall this morning with tropical force winds. Came out of no where. Second for the Atlantic Hurricane season and it hasn’t even began. I will check out your blog. Sorry for the late reply. It went into my spam. πŸ™‚


  2. Gosh, Lisa, if you’d have let me know I would have been more than happy to send you some rain!

    • Thank you! It’s our backyard. I could stand for it to be a little less overgrown, but we can’t see our neighbors and they can’t see us. πŸ™‚
