My Random 5 Friday

We had an early morning rain. The temperature is in the mid 70's and now a gentle breeze is blowing. This is a morning that I am grateful for!

 
I am sharing 5 random facts this morning.
 
1. It is supposed to rain some more this weekend. This is the first year that we have not had a deficit in what seems like forever. Last year our well was on the verge of being a bit iffy, so I am not complaining!
 
 
2. The flowers are happy this morning. The former yard, now a jungle needs a tractor, not a mower.
 
 
3. The figs are not ready yet. I will make fig preserves this year since I didn't make them last year.
 
 
4. Old fashioned Lantana makes me smile, it reminds me of my childhood.
 
 
5. Ruby Tuesday makes me smile too! How can you not love a face like that?

  3. So glad you are enjoying the rain. I wish I could be so happy about it. We've had either gray skies or oppressive heat and humidity. It would be understandable if I lived in Florida, but I'm in Pennsylvania. It's just not right! Beautiful photos....Ruby Tuesday made me smile too.

  10. I have to say your flowers are just beautiful--and as a rain loving Oregonian I think raindrops just make them prettier! But they are no match for the adorable little face on Ruby tuesday--I have never had a goat and hear they are naughty...but I know for a fact that she is adorable!
