A-Z Monday, Letter U



Umbrellas!

What a lot of use they have been getting this summer.

So much that they are worn out and need to be replaced.

This must be one of the wettest summers I have ever known.

We have told our Swedish friends not to laugh about British summers.

This Swedish summer has been so wet.

Not only rain most days

but

heavy, heavy rain,

and thunderstorms.

But you wouldn't want to go out in a thunderstorm with your umbrella up

would you?

Check in with Jen at http://unglazed.blogspot.com/ for more A-Z Mondays.

I like your post. We had a wet spring, but not a lot of rain this summer.

Boy, those crayfish look good! Or as they say down south, "mudbugs".

Good U!! It just finished raining (& hailing) here for 4 days and nights. Now it is supposed to warm up a bit. Happy Monday!

Mildred said...

So Sweden is where all the rain went! (We are finally getting a lot this week, though)

I could have used one today. Went to work and it was pouring down. I thought I had the umbrella in my car, but I didn't. I got drenched on the way from the car to the building. Happy Monday, Lynne! :)

Hey Lynne!
That's the word I thought of before reading your post.
Is that gorgeous garden yours?

Jen said...

Happy A-Z on Monday to U Lynne.
Love your picture- that rain has done a good job at keeping your garden green. ;)
