Wet Plants

After a long brutal dry season that led to irritated skins and low moral, we finally received the first tropical heavy rainfall.  It rained cats and dogs for about two hours yesterday afternoon.

After the rain stopped, I went outside to take a few shots of the moist plants.  I hope you enjoy the pictures below, as they highlight the return of life to the thirsty metropolis.  Here we go. (Kindly click images to enlarge and enjoy them better.)

We are so glad the rainy season is back.  It was long overdue.  Good Day.

  1. The first rains after a dry spell are so invigorating to our souls and nature just seems to brighten…nice dewy foliage 🙂

    Enjoy the rest of your day, Omar~

  2. Hello Barbara,

    This past dry spell was too much. It’s time for a change of weather. I prefer the rainy season much more than the torching sun of the dry season. We should now have daily rainfall until mid December. Great news for my wife and me.



  3. Hola Omar,
    If you need to borrow a cup of rain, we have LOTS to spare. Our average in North Texas is ~37 inches per year; I believe we are over 30 inches already and still getting storms. We may have to come visit to get dry?! haha

    I always like the “rainy” season in Panama. On the Pacific side one could count on the rain starting at 4 PM every afternoon. Plenty of time during the day to get out and finish chores. And the air was always fresh in the mornings.


    1. After the long drought in Texas, I’m glad that you’re enjoying rainfall again. I’m sure wildlife is happy with fresh water from the skies once more.

      I agree with you Jim, that the rainy season in Panama is so well distributed during the day, that you have ample time to enjoy the rain and able to do your daily errands. Rainfall usually doesn’t take place during the whole 24 hours.

      Yep, the air is always fresh in the mornings. Nice and cool!

      Best Regards,


      1. I suppose by the time August is here, I will be longing for the rain! Ha And I should adjust my comment to reference only the areas closer to the coasts. Nena reminded me that in her hometown of Boquete, the mornings are very damp and chilly. The bajareque that drifts down the mountain keeps everything humid.

  4. Living in Boquete is like living an eternal spring. Their inhabitants are very lucking in having such a priviledged climate all year long.

    Those who love flowers and gardening also love the cool climate of Boquete.
