Mother Earth...........

.........received a drink from Father Sky today. If you look close you can see a raindrop on the window.. :) So thats my drink for Tea Tuesday......... I'm sorry i'm late... I almost didn't post. I just could not find an inspiring photo to post....... Its been raining steadily since early early this morning... glorious rain..... 

California is the only place i've lived that it can rain all day and you come away with maybe  half an inch of rain , if your lucky...  Rain was scarce in TX too but.... BUT when it rained it RAINED.. buckets!  Stormy, windy.... several inches of rain in a couple hours... it was an event!   Here it drizzles.......mists........but today i've actually had rain in the gutters... flowing out the downspouts... a good rain......... and its suppose to do it tomorrow......... 

No complaints here.......ever....... 

The dreary light from the rain soaked clouds still managed to set aglow a new Christmas Cactus bloom.  The white one is about finished and the pink has started to pop......... So pretty with the light through the petals........  I hope you have a fabulous T Tuesday. If you'd like to visit with some more T drinkers pop on over to Elizabeth's and Bleubeards. They love to have you for Tea. Big Hugs! deb

So glad to hear you finally got a good rain. We had a couple inches of snow last Friday night but it rained on Saturday and it was gone by noon.

Ah, glorious rain. The gift from Father Sky. What a great way to think of rain. Your Christmas cactus is beautiful. And so lush and welcoming, too.

I would be glad to accept some of that rain. We need it, too. Thanks for sharing it and your lovely blooms with us for T this week. And I was thrilled you decided to post, too.

Deb, you've still never seen a real California rain storm. There hasn't been one since 2008. We got around 4 inches of rain here in the San Bernardino mountains, but it was a very odd kind of storm for Southern California - no howling winds, no hard rain, just a gentle, steady rain for three and one half days. Honestly, I prefer that kind of rain to the kind we used to get because the ground has a chance to soak it in.

Blessings,

Victoria
