I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain; What a wonderful feeling, I’m happy again. ~~ Arthur Freed
Into each life some rain must fall (at least according to Longfellow) but around here that has been a VERY little rain, lately — but we did get a nice shower a few days ago. It washed the leaves and cleaned the air.
Rain has been a largely absent commodity this year. We’ve just left behind one of the driest winters I remember in awhile. I fear it is going to be blisteringly hot this summer — the seasonal creeks that usually have water in them at least until July are already almost dry. That’s why it was so nice to spend some time in the rain-sweet garden –just breathing in the clean,sweet air.
When it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow. ~~ Gilbert K. Chesterton
Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. ~~ Langston Hughes
This rose looked unearthly in the overcast light- an eerie beauty … and no, it’s not photo shopped.
I don’t expect more rain for quite sometime, but — oh — it was a lovely gift while it lasted!
