Oh wonderful, wonderful rain. The whole of last week there wasn't any drop of rain here in Kuching. June and July are the hottest months here and we expect to get a bit of rain toward end of August and gradually increasing towards year end.With the amount of rain in the video you need not water your plants at least for a couple of days. (BTW the raindrops reminds me of Jose Feliciano singing'Rain') Throughout last week I've been watering the plants every morning and late afternoon. Your garden showing up well. Have a nice weekend....gardening?

That looks like a beautiful, cleansing rainfall. We had one here yesterday which produced a beautiful rainbow. Your space looks so inviting.

Rain can be so peaceful to watch and so soothing to listen to. We've had a lovely rain day. I say "lovely" because it has been warm, the rain has been gentle, and the air has smelled so fresh because of it. Thanks for the video of your rain!

Yep, exactly it's either rainy and/or cloudy here too all July-September and sometimes into mid-October. But I use the excuse to curl up on the couch with a good book or television program, some tea of coffee and just relax and soak it all in! ;)

Have a lovely weekend, no matter what you do.

My advice to you would be to curl up with a good book and enjoy the peaceful sound of the rain. Maybe it will clear up later and produce that rainbow Hilary mentioned.

I found your blog awhile back and while I don't stop by as often as I should, I do love visiting. Your blog is so so beautiful!

Just wanted to let you know that you've been tagged for an award. Please stop by my blog for details.

Those pictures are amazing. Sometimes I really love rain. The smell, the rhythm. It makes me feel sort of nostalgic. Hard to explain.

There is a scene in the movie "Green Card" where Andie McDowell is sitting in her kitchen staring at the rain and as funny as it sounds that has always been one of my favorite scenes in the whole movie. mmmmmmmmmmmmm Magical rain!!

Your Summer Regae post was sure fun!!

I love all your pictures. Last year we got a lot of July Rain. This year has been dry. Wish I had some of your July Rain here!

Thanks for sharing!

Ahh..the rain!
The colors of your flowers, the greens of the leaves and your flower pots still look bright and cheery through it all.
We have been having rain, but conveniently only at night now.
Keep the sun shining in your heart, Zuzana!

so right you are, the rain was very welcomed! Although I rather have sunshine, the rain is important for the plants.:))
I like Jose and his music.;)) I hope your weekend is lovely as well; thank you for your always wonderful comments.;))

Peter's mother has told us about the rain, and I told her I hope it stops by the time we get there!

=Jacki,
I hope so too.;) But I am sure that even if it rains, there will be some sunny days in between.;))
