Rainy Days and Mondays

                                             and Tuesdays
                                                                 and Wednesdays
                                                                                           and Thursdays and...

 almost every day
 late afternoon
 or evening
 heavy rain storms.  many severe with lightening and wind.
We broke the recorded record for rainfall in June ~ more than 10 inches.
My son-in-law posted a photo on fb with this caption:  the My house at the end of the rainbow
then, fifteen minuted later, this is what we saw from our front door
a beautiful sky after a storm

What beautiful photos, Lorraine! We sure could use some of that rain here in Texas! I LOVED the rainbow...always HOPE!

Cheryl said...

You have some lovely rain photos here! Rain falling here too. I really do not mind rain...but this has been a bit much for me. I feel as if I might mildew...

It looks like the flowers are happy!

Beautiful rainbow. We have had some heavy storms as well, hail the other day, very wet June....so many times there are rainbows in the midst of those storms...kind of like life. Thanks for sharing these Lorraine

Beautiful photos!

Same kind of weather here...but we did manage to sneak in some pool time with the grandkids yesterday. I saw a bit of a rainbow the other day. But nothing as vibrant as the rainbows you shared!
Wonderful photos, as usual!!

We have been having the same thing-thunder storms and a little rain. We also had hail on Friday night that did lots of damage to our vege's.
Love the sky after the rain though; your pics are lovely.
Hugs, Noreen

Ann said...

Lea Culp said...

What beautiful pictures of the rainbow and the skies. Who could ever deny there is a God? His handprint is everywhere!

Winnie said...

These are really fantastic photos!
It's amazing for me that you have rain in June, while here it is so hot :)

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

All are pretty pics, I love the last one of the rainbow! Yep, I'd like a little break in the rain too... How about Thursday?:@)

Debbie Petras said...

When I first read the title of this post, I started singing the Carpenter's song. Do you remember it? But as I read your post all I could think of was ...send the rain to Phoenix. We have had such a long drought and extremely high temps of 119! But if it rained and rained, I guess I would have to say I'd get a bit tired of it too.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Fabulous rainbows and sky. We got our rain all morning and early afternoon today. It seemed to really pick up just as I left the subway and needed to walk. Keep cool!

Pondside said...

If I could, I would blow a little of our very hot, dry weather down your way. It may be small comfort, but all that rain will pay off in gorgeous blooms soon!

Susan said...

Great photos, Lorraine! Loved them. Yeah, I know what you mean about the rain.

It's starting to feel like Noah's Arc around here. Susan

Olga said...

How beautiful! I love your rain photos. Last week, we had two days of rain too! I enjoyed them so much. That was so unusual for CA. And now we have a wave of unbearable heat, it's over 100 every day.

Lord, I wish we could get a little of your rain. Not 10 inches, but two would be a blessing.

I am fascinated by rainbows. The photos capture the mood so well.

Melanie said...

Great pictures! We have been getting the rain here too, not complaining as we have been in a drought! Last picture was awesome!

SarahGeorge said...

Oh! what a wonderful set of rainy day pictures! Amazing rainbow pictures as well:). Reminder of God's wonderful promise!.

What pretty pictures!! What are the purple flowers that look a little like Hydrangeas?

Lynn said...

When I look at your beautiful photo I think to myself, "Showers of blessings". Yes, I did read that you did have heavy rain and storms. So glad they did no damage. Love the double rainbow. The area you live in is beautiful, serene and just lovely. What a blessing to hop over today and be "refreshed" with such delightful beauty. Thank you for stopping to see me. So glad to find you again as your blog has always touched my heart.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Oh, my goodness you are getting rain like we are. How outstanding the rainbow photo is... jaw dropping awesome.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Wow! What amazing photography and what beautiful nature happenings! The rainbow makes my heart rejoice today.
