Forecasting

I read that by watching the bees, wasps, butterflies and birds
I could forecast if it was going to rain.


My bees and wasps just fly from flower to flower.
The onion flowers are very popular.

The birds check the rain gauge.

I look to the clouds.
All the storms seem to go around us.
I need rain again.
The new plants could use a good drink.
The basil garden and the sunflower garden need Mother's watering.

Dear Friend,

I hope you get the rain you need. A dragonfly landed on my hand yesterday, he stayed there for a very long time. I thought of you!

Have you ever hear-told that when the tree leaves turn over, when blowning - it will rain? :-)

You commented under pics of balconies in Photos-City-Mine blog... that you love them too. And since you live in a little one story house, you like them when traveling.

I love but don't have a balcony. And I also love a little one story house, and don't have that either. But... :-)

The sky pics are brilliant, but a little bit scary :-) Take care if the storms come your way.

Dear Sasha,
Dragonflies are very good luck!
Dragonfly kisses are incredible...
over the Moon and bliss!
May you have an ice cream sundae afternoon!

Dear Mari-Nanci,
I read that and if the grass is dry in the morning, no dew, it will rain.
I do love balconies. I like the romance of them.
I like my little house, easy to care for so I can be outside with the birds, bugs and blooms!

Dear Chris,
The storm clouds rolled in at sunset and made for an incredible sky.
My husband and I walked in the cemetery and watched as the storm went north of us.
I need some rain.

Dear Nita,
Thank you!
Nature is so beautiful!
Even today, in the heat, there is beauty. Mankind needs to take care of the earth. We need to be very good stewards.
