"I Slept In..."


...this morning...
while the desert skies were moody and overcast
and my yard
was kissed with precious sprinkles of rain.

"I love sleep.
My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know?"
~
Ernest Hemingway

It is raining cats and dogs here this morning. I am so glad it waited until this morning to bless us with this rain. Your photos are so pretty. I just love Bouganvillia (sp). It is only an annual here.

I love rain-kissed plants. It means they're happy!

Bougainvillea in coloquial Arabic is called "Majnoneh" which litterally means crazy or wild. I love it! My dad planted one in his garden that is named Fadwa's Majnoneh - I wonder if he was trying to tell me something? :-)
