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!
“I believe in roses. Oh God, yes! I do believe in roses! And I believe in lots and lots and lots of them, too!” ~~ C. JoyBell
Lord, it’s been ages since I posted here! I thought Spring would be such a great time to garden-blog — and I’m still sure it is — but things got more than a little hectic around here recently, with a loss in Ray’s family, and new personnel in the business — and Spring sort of had to make it on it’s own out there. I do have dozens of photos but no blog to go with them.
Rather than try to play “catch up,” I’m just going to jump in with the biggest thing going right now — which is roses — roses everywhere! Our Mediterranean climate here seems perfectly suited for roses, and they are everywhere you look.
