I love these images, Marina, and yes, so hopeful. Here in the bay area, our wish is the same. 🙂 Hugs, dear friend, for a better week. 💗❤️💕💞💖😍
Here’s to rain! The moderate kind! No extremes needed! 😉😘🤗😘
Hugs back and a beautiful week ahead!
Agreed! No extremes! Our daughter and SIL arrived last Tuesday and will be here through this week, so it’s been great! 💕💕💕🥰
That is wonderful!!! Enjoy!!!!
Nice image and hope that your wishes get fulfilled
Thank you very much! I believe these were, at least partly! 🙏
Those first drops will be so refreshing and bring life back ☔💐🌈🙋♂️
Indeed, my dear Ashley… 🙏🌱🌳🌲
I am so so happy for you, Marina – and for all of Athens and Greece. Rain has a marvelous way of bringing freshness and hope. Your photos are brilliant.
Yes, it does, especially in the summer.
Thank you so much, my dearest friend.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
It’s good to see some relief for your beleagered land.
Oh, yes, my dear Liz.
Have a beautiful weekend! xo
Thanks, Marina! Our heat wave has lifted to give us the most perfect late summer day.
That is great news, Liz! Enjoy! xoxo
Thank you very much, Mina. 🙏
Most welcome, Marina
happy rainy weekend 🤞🏾🤞🏾🍀
Thank you, my friend!
We’re hoping Monday here. Needed. 15mm possibly
I hope so too!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏
We got it. A corner crossed
Ha, rain, let’s hope it’s not from one extreme to another. Don’t wish to be the harbinger of doom, so hope it signifies an end to what sounded like a terrible few months.
I know what you mean. It was a very moderate rain and it is now gone but temp is also cooling down, so all good, for now.
Well said and displayed. Thoughts and prayers for all across the globe dealing with fires.
Thank you, my dear friend. Across the globe indeed.
Sending love ☺️❤️🕊🤍
For Emily Dickinson hope was the thing with feathers. For you now it’s understandably raindrops.
Ah, yes, hope is hope though, it just manifests differently even for the same person. 😉
I agree with Timothy. You take the loveliest images of the simplest of things. I hope more rain falls and drenches the parched earth. No more lightening, though, ok?
Aww… thank you, Dale! I hope so too and yes, lightning, we can live without, at least for these days! 😉 Many hugs your way! xoxo
Yes! Many hugs your way, too. xoxo
Wishing you calmer weather….
Thank you, my dear Sue, yes, calmer weather! 🙏🤗
You make such beautiful images from the simplest things. I hope the rain is moderate and does not cause severe flooding from the baked earth.
Thank you, my dear friend. I’d just got in my car and saw them, saw they were taken with my phone camera. Just a few drops fell in Athens and slightly more elsewhere but lightning caused a few small and thankfully short lived fires and it was accompanied by some strong winds, but still it was a blessing and temperature has dropped, so.. hopeful.
After we had fires in 2011 in the Jemez, thunderstorms caused severe flooding because the rainfall could not soak into the scorched earth. The flooding destroyed Dixon Apple Farm that had operated for 75 years near Jemez Pueblo in a canyon along a tributary to the Rio Grande. Dixon Apple Farm had unique, world-famous apples that were delicious. The owners took some of the saplings to Wisconsin after the State would not renew their lease or allow them to rebuild the farm. In 2019, they brought a 40-foot truckload of their first harvest from Wisconsin to Albuquerque. The apples sold out in about an hour.
That is such a hopeful story!
They are planning to create flooding barriers very soon with the remaining tree barks. I hope sooner than later.
Let’s hope very soon.
