We finally got some rain. Between early Thursday morning and late last night, we probably got 1/2" or more. It's not much, but everything feels refreshed. Even normally rude customers were nicer at the store. Hopefully this will end our dry spell. More rain is in the forecast for this weekend.

When I got home from work last night, I did what I always do. I went into my bedroom and grabbed some clothes for a shower. The scent hit me as soon as I walked through the door. I could smell they were blooming. They're not exactly the white I had envisioned, but they'll do.

A few datura blooms are still visible this morning.

Okra in the potager.

The mandevilla I grew from a cutting this winter is blooming. It's late.

The morning glory on the chimney is really taking off.

I'm off today. No real plans. It's cloudy and cool at 66 degrees. That's good napping weather.

Nice to see someone's brugs are blooming! I don't even have buds yet due to a sunless, rainy June.

I love the smell of brugs. Yours are a pretty color also, really delicate. Your alamanda is a great color.

Your weather sounds nice. It is 86 right now and feels like it's 99. It's been miserable all day so I've stayed indoors.

Hope you get more rain and have a great weekend.
