The Rain In Spain...

...lies mainly in the plain!  

Dear Eliza Doolittle From My Fair Lady had it almost right.  After more than 2 months without a drop of rain, it has poured on and off for five days this past week.  So, now the rain in Spain lies mainly in my new patio!

The rain has softened our clay soil enough to dig out an area for our new patio. 

The area needs to be dug out to below the bottom step of the stairs.

The sun has come out today and it is supposed to be quite warm for the next few days, so that patio area will soon be rock-solid.  But, you know what rain and sun means... flowers!

Chaenomeles japonica


Looks who else likes the rain - Iberian imperial eagle and buzzard
(aquila adalberti and buteo buteo)

  1. Finally your rain! I hope it is not too much. We had rain too and everything started to grow like mad. You asked me about the irisses I have posted. I have planted about a hundred. They like dry summers, but they flower for a short period in warmer
    climate. Enjoy the spring! Groetjes, Hetty

  2. Glad to see you have rain...we need heat to thaw....soon!
