Raining and wet...

These are the pictures I went outside to take yesterday, and had planned to post them till Mama Squirrel made herself available for a photography session. It rained and rained yesterday....steadily all morn and then showers off and on all afternoon. I really do need to get a rain gage till I can see just how much it does rain.
As you can see by this picture my peony is about done...yes, you read that right. I only have one. I have come to the conclusion that I do like them planted just one here and there, rather than in rows as so often seen around here. This one is at the corner of my front porch and stands out so much more than if it was in a row of them.
The picture below is just a cropped version of the one above. I like the way it looks when enlarged. I used to have spring jacket almost this color and I loved it. I was in the local grocery store one time when wearing it, and looked up and there was another lady with one on just like it. Someone I did not know, but we looked at each and said, "OH, I just LOVE your jacket!"

I have never been a fan of white flowers...I do not know why. Then Sarah got me this, and it is just so pretty I can't help but love it. And seeing some of the photos others have of daisies had sure made me come to appreciate their simple beauty.
I probably won't go out and buy any white flowers--I tend to go for more colorful things. But I am growing to actually like them. But they will be sort of like I am by polka-dotted clothes....I actually love them on other people but cannot stand to wear them now. Though I do remember my mom making me dresses from dotted Swiss material--does that count?
Spent the day with Little Bright Eyes....at Sarah's house. She stayed home today and needed a little bit of help with Lorelei. Not that anything was wrong with Lorelei. Lorelei just smiled and smiled when we got there, and I sure was glad to hold that baby again. I had really missed her over the weekend.

It has been thundering and has started raining again. It did not rain in Terre Haute today, but we could tell by how wet things were that it had rained here during the day. And supposed to rain the next two days as well, unless the forecast has changed. I haven't taken time to check.

I will go ahead and post this, just in case the it starts storming so bad I have to unplug everything. But I am going to try to visit a few blogs before I have to shut down for good.
