I just took this picture of the backyard to show what a difference less than 24 hours makes. The pictures of the yard in my Pink Saturday post below were taken on Friday afternoon. You can see the hanging planter in this picture that appears in one of the pictures below.

Talk about rain!! We've had a lot today. My husband went out in the backyard to try and clear the drains we have so the water can drain from the yard. They get clogged with leaves and debris, but sometimes the rain comes down so fast that the drains can't carry it off fast enough, or the street in the front floods and that's where the drains take the water and it backs up.
I know the picture is dark, but the sky was as dark as midnight and it was pouring. You can see how deep the water is on my husband's legs.
Now continue on to the real Pink Saturday post below. :)


  1. Thanks so much for coming by......I love company.

    I had to go back and see where you are from....I'm from Washington State and that's how it looks here allllllll the time! :-)

    Loved the pix of your pets. What a group you have there. could send me Sophie! Such a cutie-patootie....By the way, Rod Steward and Cher and playing right now on my Playlist! :-)

    Blessings and Happy Pink Saturday.


  2. Wow, you really did have the rain. You just have to love it tho, some places have none. I hope the spring sun comes and warms you up a bit, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  3. What a difference in one day. Your weather is as nutty as ours, but I'm happy you're getting so much rain, as I know you need it.

  4. Boy , you really did get rain. We did also and we are so thankful. We need grass for our goats and we just put down our fertilizer and God sent rain.

  5. I believe that your rain is coming our way today. That was how I knew that you were not close enough to pop in at my yard sale :) Hope the weather is better for you today.
    ♥, Susan

  6. Very rainy indeed. It's been that way here as well!
