Garden Tuesday ~ Rain, Rain, Rain

I know some of you had to deal with inches upon inches of snow.  Well, we had to deal with rain.  Never ending rain.  Even the little birdies were tired of it.  I saw these house finches trying to stay drive under the eaves of our porch.

As you can imagine, the kitty cats were not amused with the rain at all.  I had to open the door and show them the rain about 5 minutes.  However, the kitty cat’s refusal to go out in the rain made some critters very happy.  The squirrels seemed to instinctively know that there would be not kitties out in the rain.

How about you?  What’s happening in your garden this week?  Rain?  Snow?  Sun?

Please join me for Garden Tuesday.

The rain can be so depressing but your photos are gorgeous!

I'm trying to get back into the habit of showing my garden and commenting again! I've been a lurker lately.....

We had rain yesterday afternoon - glorious cleansing rain which happened to be snow at the higher elevations so the mountains are white today. Yup, even in Tucson!

Snow, snow, snow! The birdies are hiding somewhere!

We had a little bit of snow, but it was gone within two days.
