I don't have to like it, though.


Grass on the edge of the pool at Pershing Park.

Because of the rain, (no matter how much I complained about it) everything looks fresh and sparkling. The greens are greener, the colors of the blooming flowers more intense. The birdsong is more vivid, the sky seems bluer and the air is soft and clean. OK. Just because I complain about it doesn't mean rain isn't a Very Good Thing.

Enjoy the aftermath. Nothing is better than a drenching rain for growing things.

it's supposed to rain here today - lying in bed listening to the first pattering of raindrops on the wooden deck outside - then watching it play across the windows . . . happy times!!! steven

The rain doesn't even mind if you complain, either. It starts and stops when it feels like it.

Nice pics, Reya. Have a good one in Washington.

We've had down pours for the last three days. It has felt like winter but all the greenery is so clean and bright. And I don't have to water evertything like I did last weekend because it was burning up. I know I had better enjoy this now 'cause we'll probably hit the 100's by end of next week.

I love bluer. Not my favorite color but the word is so pretty. To look at and to say. You give us the best photos. Right in my face gorgeous. Used to be able to set a clock to the rains here. Maybe this summer again.

my word veri. is 'restop'. How does it know??? *v*

So it's true we can't be sure what's a blessing and what's a disaster.

Hey Reya...send me an email to jezebela@telus.net.

I am never allowed to complain about the rain, really, living where we do. But I do find it a real downer after a few weeks of our rainy season, when the novelty has worn off! Hope you have a bit of sunshine now x

moonshin said...

yeah...i do that too, sometimes... but i can't really explain why...it's funny how the human psyche works huh?

Here in the midwest the abundance of spring rain is driving the farmers nuts! I have rather enjoyed it and it has kept me from having to water the garden. good day!
