Raindrops keep falling on my head

We are getting a lot of rain here and loving it.
Where some might see storm clouds, we can only see a silver lining ... not only is it great for the garden it also fills up the watertanks and it is music to our ears, hearing the drip, drip, drip into the tank.
Mind you it was a quick dash this morning from the supermarket to the car, with the groceries and trying to dodge the puddles.

As the saying goes ' April showers bring May flowers'

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain 

I like people, who smile when it's raining
This week really flew by - hope you have had a lovely week and now I wish you a happy weekend



  1. Fab theme for a post, darling!
    Love that Vogue cover :


  2. Dear Carolyn,
    I'm glad your water tanks are filling up! I love the posters, the pretty vase and the flowers Hope your weekend is going well.
    Linda :)

  3. I have mixed feelings about rain, we have mostly a lot of it during the year and I hate it when it takes the whole day.

  4. A great reminder for us to dance in the rain! I have literally done that, but only once, I was so glad to see rain!! xx

  5. Rain is such a relief after long dry spells. So charming to see the Morton's Salt Girl. Memories of my Nanu and a tray she had in her kitchen with this picture on it!
    Enjoy the week end!

  6. What a most beautiful flower bouquet you have made, dear Carolyn,- and I`m happy for your wells being filled- love your happy spirit my friend, and the great sayings !
    Hugs, Dorthe

  9. Dear Carolyn!
    Water is so essential .....I know this well.
    I am often in Dubai.
    Here in Bavaria where I live we have more than enough water in perfect quality.
    Dear Carolyn, I wish you wonderful rain to fill your tanks!
    Happy weekend!
    With love,

  10. Hello Carolyn
    I love opening up the window a bringing in the fresh smell of the rain. Enjoy your weekend!

  11. Hi Carolyn, I love the rain too and we've been getting a lot here as well.
    Your graphics are beautiful. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
    Keep dancin in the rain.
    Hugs and Blessings my friend, CM

  12. There is a bright side to rainy days :)

  13. So very true Carolyn! We are praying for some rain tomorrow to help our spring garden along. Those vintage photos up there are so delightful! Here is to an outstanding Sunday my friend!! Nicole xo

  14. Carolyn, I'm so glad the rain has come your way. I love the rain, and it's very much needed here too. These pictures are so whimsical, I love them all!

    Have a blessed Sunday, and dance in the rain.

    love, ~Sheri

  15. Carolyn, We are finally having some rain which helps our flowers. I like it when the rain is gentle without the wind. Like this saying...Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain!

  16. Dearest Carolyn,
    Well, raindrops that's fine, we all can dodge them but we've had our share of heavy rain. The tulips that started budding when we left for Arizona on the 22nd, did actually rot away... So no bulbs left. This entire week we had heavy rain, except today, only cloudy. Tomorrow heavy thunderstorms and 90% chance of rain so on it goes. Hard to get anything done in the garden.
    But yes, we better dance!
    Sending you Sunday blessings and hugs,

  17. Hi Carolyn, I just love those vintage images....We have lots of rain here near Seattle and I always love to hear it pitter-pattering down the gutters. The air smells so fresh after a good rain, too. Wishing you a lovely Sunday and week ahead. Hugs xo K

  18. as the Norwegians would say ' there's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes'

  19. Singing in the rain! Love your vintage images and I wish you the best of days now!
    Take care!

  20. Rain is great .... when you are indoors and can hear it pattering on the window pane. But yes we do need rain as much as we need sun.

    Love those flowers

    Keep Dry

    All the best Jan

  21. My dear Carolyn,
    wonderful Rain Pictures, they made me smile :O)
    Wishing you a happy and wonderful new week,
    sending much Love and hugs,
    Claudia xo
    Thank you for your kind note, I will get back to you later ;O)

  22. I love your vintage images. I love rain because it' s soothing for me.

  23. Oh Carolyn, rainy days are my absolute favorite. Unfortunately we haven't been getting too many of them, and we sure do need the water. Enjoy your beautiful rainy days my dear friend.
