You Can Thank Us For The Rain

Ever since this statue called to us and then got installed in the back yard I have been wondering what powers it might have. I now know. It is a rain dragon.
I decided to leave a little floral offering on Thursday and ask it to send some rain.
Here it is Saturday and it is still raining. Thank you!

A blog reader told me that gnomes come out in the night. So I have been looking to see if my bunch are moving around in the back yard. I spotted this guy after the rain. Did I put him here...or did he run here for shelter?

Saturday of the long weekend. I am so happy to have this time.
