Rain Jewels

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

Every drop of rain is a jewel this year in the State of North Dakota as much of the State is in the highest drought catagory given by the National Weather Service. However these drops actually looked like jewels after a recent sprinkle. You may recognize the plant that used to be in my office.

Very pretty picture, Bob! Your plant is obviously thriving. Here's hoping you get some relief from "liquid sunshine" soon.

Thanks Kat Palmiotti . The phot didn't capture the beauty as well as I had hoped because in real life it looked like there was a diamond it the center of each bud. You can really only see that on one bud in the picture.

Hello Bob - rain droplets can definitely take on a jewel-like appearance.  Many parts of the country are more than ready for such treasures.

Good morning Bob. Chicago had a mini monsoon yesterday and the storms were severe. That said, we needed every drop as we to have been dry this year. A little liquid sunshine was welcomed. Enjoy your day.

They are doing good now but they did have a little trouble adjusting from being indoors at my office to the great out of doors.
