Rainy Days & Mondays….


Happy Columbus Day!!

It's been raining here for days ~
I don't mind it at all really…
in fact 
I've always loved the rain.

I find beauty in the stillness of it.

I love how it charges the air and cleanses everything ~

here are some snaps of the rainy morning….


~ our ancient Elder tree in the morning mist ~


a soggy owl flag by the front gate...


my passion flower vine growing up the side of the old farmhouse


...beloved St. Anthony holding a drink for our wildlife friends ~


turning, turning….


our nandina berries in the rain ~


beautiful droplets


~ bejeweled ~


so very still...

 even the sheep are wearing their wet wool coats…


Bobby & Esther  {a.k.a. = "Baaaa-by" & "Mommy"}


Esther in the morning rain

this is my favorite picture of the morning:

looks like it is weeping….

I'll be (finally) cleaning the farmhouse today ~
there are wool-bunnies living under everything!
{{{poor Iggy thinks they are his friends I swear}}}

then I will put out my Hallowe'en decorations ~
I'll share photos of that with you on the morrow…

Have a beautifully creative day my friends,
...no matter the weather :)


* Blessed be *
