Rain--I Don't Mind...

Beach-goers may have a problem with rainy days, but to me a good rain can perk up a garden like no irrigation system ever can.


I love rainy days, despite not being able to work in my garden. Anyhow, it's a good excuse to curl up with a cup of cocoa.


I'm working on a web page with more about my garden, because while a blog is perfect for a garden, which is ever-changing, it will save me the need to repeat myself on some things. It's here: Deborah's Garden  I'm still working with the quirks of Google Sites and trying to decide what to put in it.

Just took a peek at your new web site. Wow, you have a big property, and a creek in the middle. Nice! Are you a web designer? I am a software programmer, but not expert to make the web page pretty :) I love your head picture, and the art words.

Your website is nice, and your property sounds lovely. You are so lucky to have snagged up the extra lots. I have such dreams myself of having more garden space someday. Your website words on gardening in Florida is so true. This is why I plant so many tropicals. The cold-hardy plants that can take the heat are very limited, and if we only used those, the garden would be so boring.

Thanks, guys.

I was certified as a website designer ten years ago. I didn't keep up, and technology got ahead of me--so I'm just a humble old-fashioned HTML gal who can tweak sites. I evolved into a graphic artist instead and can do fancy things in Photoshop.

Having an acre of land a block from the sea in Florida is indeed a treat. The front two lots are useless to developers, as they are wetlands, but to us they are gold.

The list of plants that can take the heat and cold here is narrow indeed. I've found over the years that pushing the limit towards tropical plants was much more successful than trying to get a cold-hardy plant to survive the summer.

How wonderful that you are defending wetlands from developers. We too have a little gentle rain today. More please?

PS visiting from your comment on Jean's Blotanical post

Thanks for stopping by. Yes, we not only saved the wetlands from developers, but saved our privacy from too many neighbors.

Aren't you clever.....privacy is very important on so many levels.

Deb I love the pictures of the rain drops on the tree and the circles of rain drops in the little pond.. It's quiet and calming to look at.

I too" like to use a rainy day to just relax with a cup of cocoa when I can't get outdoors or write in my garden journal.
