Standing on the front porch, the sound of raindrops playing their music in my ears, I lifted the potted fern from the porch and out into the rain and stood watcing the fronds lifted toward the rain.
Six minutes and the rain stopped. I snapped the photo on the right side below and stood watching as the sun painted the dark green the bright green the rain had brought.
This amazing phenomenon of rain turning to sun is the normal for Florida, we are in the sub tropics of the state only 40 miles from the tropics.
Hot sun and cool rain make everything grow like we live in a giant green house.
The normal rainfall comes almost every afternoon during the warm months, but for months we
had no rain.
Sunshine and Shadows, two of my favorite things.
A few hours later the rain came once again, this time for an hour.
We received a total of 1.75 inches in two days.
Thank you, Lord.
