In the previous days the weather was very hot and I was waiting for rain. And the other day I woke up at 3 am by thunder. I got up and went to the window. Lightning flashed and thunder rumbled as if directly over the roof of the country cottage. Heavy rain poured right through the window. I immediately closed the window because I am very afraid of lightning.
Then I fell asleep again and got up as usual at 7 am. The air was fresh and clean, and there were drops of rain on the grass and plants. I brewed coffee, added milk to the cup, and went to the garden with a cup of coffee. I drank coffee and looked at the plants. Why not take pictures of the plants after a heavy rain?
Campanula medium and Pelargoniums
Poor white peonies
My veggies in raised beds, lettuce and parsley
Roses withstood heavy rain well
In the afternoon, the sun again heated the air to +26 C and I moved into the shade of the gazebo with my armchair. The forecast does not promise heavy rains in the coming days. It's good that the tanks were filled to the brim with rain water.
