A little break in the rain

There are times when it is cold and gray and the rain seems endless, and I wonder why we chose to live in all this rain. But then I remember what it gives us. Glorious spring and summer, for starters.  It has been raining off and on today— gentle, fragrant spring rain that makes everything sparkle and seems to pump up the color saturation. This view out the back door made me think of Impressionist paintings. (The "Glaze" app helped the illusion along.)

So many parts of the country are in drought. Alarming. I wish we could share some of our rain.

  1. As a native Pacific northwesterner living in southern California, I can say GREEN is why you live there. :-D
    And I was having water envy even before you mentioned drought. I was wanting to share our warmth with the northern states this winter! Well, variety keeps things interesting, I guess.
