Gosh! It's Raining! What Else Is New?

April  25, 2011

Tis a bit wet and gray here this morning.  There's no playing in the garden at the moment, but maybe I can do a bit of shopping.  We're running out of a few things, and Tootsie's snack bag is almost empty. 

I'm watching the shopping channel and they are showing fashions.  On the screen now is an adorable denim shirt with a flouncy ruffle on the bottom, and of course they are showing it on a six foot woman.  Wonder why  they don't show it on a five foot, pudgy little lady.  Are we supposed to go naked or live in mu mu's?  This skirt would make us look like large petunias!

Even  better are the handbags!!  Only rarely, are they ever under $100.  The usual price range is between $150 and $300.  These are the discounted prices!!  Almost all of the bags are big enough to use as an extra suitcase.  It can't be very comfortable trying to lug these bags around all day, especially if you put anything in them.  Gosh, what we women do to be stylish!!

Enough already.  Let's get on with today's photos.  One of the things I really love to photograph is the raindrops on leaves and flowers.  I find them very pretty and interesting.  Can you guess what this photo is?

It's the inside of a "Princess Irene" tulip.  Here is the whole tulip and a lily covered with rain drops.  There is just something very soft and pretty about flowers when they are covered with rain drops.

And, here is a fun little fellow who lives in my garden.  I think that figurines and little animals put a bit of spice in a garden.

That's about it for this morning.  I want to make a cup of coffee and start my day here.  Tomorrow, I'll have another freebie for you.  Till then, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I like your turtle! :)

We have rain, rain and more rain today. We have officially already had way more rain than usual for the area and the forecast is full of more on the way! We're on the lookout for any local arc-building!

It sounds like a good-day to fill up Tootsie's treat bag!

Hugs, Nani

I agree with your comment about the fashion choices for the "normal" women. Oh to be tall and willowy.
