It's the 22nd of July. We have had ten inches of rain in just this month.
It rains every evening and then again throughout the night.
The trees and plants are in ecstasy. The umbrella business is prospering.
Those of us who might want to go out to dinner in the evening check the skies
before venturing out. One must look in all directions.
Saturday night, for almost three hours, we had the most intense lightning storm I've witnessed in years. Actually, I don't think I've ever seen a continuous storm for that long.
It was truly amazing. I've posted a photo on Facebook that someone else shot. It's stark beauty was mesmerizing.
In the garden, even the elusive Rangoon Creeper is blooming. I've patiently waited for a couple of years for it to mature to the point of blooming. I'll get a photo this week and share it with you later.
In the meantime, I'm off to centro for the coffee klatch group with umbrella in hand.
