Twelve Inches Is Too Much...

except when it's a foot! (I know, that's bad!)  

Rain...the ponds are full, the creeks are flowing, the grass is even trying to grow.  At least, it wasn't all at once, that's our four rain total...for the week.  Water gates to clear, washes to fill, mud to sink into...fun At The Farm.
Mushrooms and toad stools come to life,
and the flowers rejoice.
The sun's light in a blue sky
reflects from fowl,
 winging their way to warmer climes.

I agree with Pat...that's a lot of water! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Great capture of the migrating birds!

That's a lot of rain, Gail. Is it also cold along with that rain? It is here and there's a cold wind blowing. Brrr... I love your blue sky, It looks so friendly.

We haven't had a lot of rain, but we have a pecan tree with spring leaves.

Hope you're all doing well!

You never let us down with your poetic voice and beautiful pictures. We could use some rain--we're still at a deficit. But what I'd really like is to get rid of this too-warm-for-November weather!

Beats that amount in snow. You'd be shoveling out until spring. At least that's what I told myself about our 2 inch rain total last week. Two inches of rain or 20 of snow. Hmmm. Hard to pick which is better...not!

Buttons said...

Wow Gail that is a lot of rain. It sure is pretty though. Take care B

ArtyMarti said...

I wish we would get a little more, our yearly total is just over 3 inches--about half of the normal amount. Yours sure makes everything look beautiful!

Love the picture of the geese... I've been trying to get one here if they'll just come down a little!

~Allison said...

I really enjoy your photos! We have had so much rain here, the horses can't go out because the pastures are like swimming pools!

Dreaming said...

I guess it is feast or famine with rain, too. Such a lot in such a short time. The poor ground can't take it all in.
I hope the mud dries up quickly!

Nezzy said...

Glory girl, we got rain but nothin' like that.

Hubs just rebuilt the last water gate yesterday. We worked the wild~eyed cattle Saturday in the rain. I don't do rain well!!! Just sayin'..... Heeehehehe!

God bless and it's great to see ya, your beautiful word and great pics again!!!

Janice said...

That is a bunch of rain.....I don't know what is worse trudging through mud everyday or trying to skate across the yard on the huge sheet of ice out there? Hope you aren't cold too.

Ms. ~K said...

Rain, rain everywhere, eh?
Pouring here today and then snow flurries overnight!
