Wet Earth

It finally rained yesterday after a long dry spell. Finally! The water reserves in Puglia were so low that the water supply to households was being rationed. It's a pleasure to see the dark wet earth. And more rain is predicted for today and tomorrow...
But, how's a cat to keep his tail dry?

Love the smell of wet soil! Hope the water reserve level is higher now. The 1st one is a very cool photo!

We're getting rain tomorrow too after 4 beautiful sun filled days! Of course our water isn't low here but one day it could be!
I love this cats colouring! do you know what kind of kitty it is?

I love it when it rains after a long time... It's good for a change, cleanse the air and my thoughts as well!

How sweet. Is he yours? I love the smell of the earth after rain.

Hilda said...

That's wonderful news! Here's to more rainy days for you!

He's such a cute kitty. Yours?

He has a sweet face too. We are getting some excellent rain now as well, but they haven't removed the water use restrictions just yet.

we have had such a long warm dry spell in autumn that we have forgotten that summr is over...

a very sweet cat who appears delighted with the rain. perhaps if it gets too wet he will find a bookshop to take cover in - tee hee!!

Saretta said...

jm - it's still raining so I hope the reserves are filling back up!

Lucia, Ann, Hilda, Elaine - that's my kitty, Tigro. He was a stray and I don't know what type he is, but he sure is cute!

rob - grazie, direi che l'ho organizzato...ma è stato un caso!

Valeria - I agree!

Pietro - yeah!

Kiwi - that's what it was like here until today's rain...

Saretta said...

Kimy - yes, he is VERY sweet and affectionate!
