This Thursday...

it's just started to rain.
 
 
 
 
i love...
 
the sight of flowing rainwater...
 
haha! that downpipes a joke,
around here it flows through the holes in the guttering,
probably inside the pipe it's bone dry!
 
 
 
 
i love...
the sound of rain on the tin roof
&
of the trickling water as it runs in rivulets from that holey guttering
&
plops onto the ground below.
 
 
i love...
the cooling touch of the fine rainspray
swept in by the wind
across from the jacaranda trees
and in through the kitchen window.
 
i'm anticipating...
the garden filled with raindiamonds
dripping from the trees
shining in the rainclear air!
 
i can almost hear
the earth whispering 'thank you'
as it sponges up every last drop.
 
rain or shine
i hope your day is fine...

  5. Beautiful ways to look at the rain Carol. And gorgeous images to go along with those words. It's a wild and woolly night here, with rain in the forecast... I can cope with rain at night, sounds just delightful! xo

  6. I have had rather too much of the rain here just now, but only because it is in such plentiful supply. I would be glad of it if we needed it. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could reset the worlds water distribution setting so we all had just enough!

  7. I agree the sound of rain is quite soothing when not heavy.
    Our farms are having a bad time with to much though but that's British weather for you.
    You have a lovely day to.
    best wishes Julie.C

  9. Oh is it raining down your end of the state too? We had a small sprinkling here yesterday, and whilst it wasn't much we were very grateful for it. The paddocks are brown and pretty much empty, and the cows do so much better on grass rather than hay...
    Hope it continues to rain!♥
