After The Rain! (Photo Friday)

          “The thirsty earth soaks up the rain,
          And drinks, and gapes for drink again.
          The plants suck in the earth, and are
          With constant drinking fresh and fair.”
                               
                                         Abaham Cowley


 Last week, the morning after our rain, I took the opportunity to hike back into our bush. I had to check the cows, and the heat, and the humidity had disappeared.



 Any troubles you have always seem to disappear in the bush.



 The rain was needed; the plants and the animals have been waiting patiently. We need more.
  I hope we all get rain soon.



Everything seems to have been waiting for the rain.




After I took these on the 17th. There has not been another drop of rain, I am sure everything is once again waiting patiently.

And as I read your post...rain is pelting my windows. And has been on and off for weeks.
Would you send me your address so I can send it to you?;))
Love walks in to the forests....I can REALLY think there:)

That would be lovely. It sure is dry everywhere. I was in Ottawa yesterday and with the humidity it felt like 46c hot. Enjoy the rain. B

Every thing here is waiting for rain. The temps are triple digits, tempers are short, and the insects are angry.

Thanks for your kind comments on my posts. I can not reply, although I want to, so here I am.

We could really use some rain too...and anything to break this humidity! (But maybe it could wait until after Jim's finished baling hay today! :) )

Great woodsy photos. I especially like the fallen feather.

Hoping for rain for everybody. It seems all the precipitation is stuck in the ocean. Problem is...a hurricane out of the gulf will probably need to be the trigger to get the water back up in the clouds.

I love the first flower. I always enjoyed the hunt for cattle as well.

Beautiful scenes.
I hope you get a nice soaking of just enough :D)

We're in the midst of so much rain - the poor farmers in our area have had to watch their hay bales floating away.
All things in moderation would be just great sometimes wouldn't it!

OH WE NEED SOME RAIN TOO! It's horribly dry here and our garden has pretty much burnt up. We will try for a Fall garden near the end of this month or early next month.
