It's absolutely pouring here today. Slate gray skies, rivers of water, ponds forming in the backyard...
And I love it!
Maybe it's because there hasn't been much rain this year, and I've missed it. But more likely it's because the rain is highlighting spring's natural palette. The grass is greener, the hyacinth more purple, the tulip (that finally decided to bloom after ten years) is more yellow. It's really quite beautiful.
I can't quite sit back and enjoy--busy day ahead as we're leaving for spring break--but I'm not too busy that I can't appreciate it (until, that is, I have to drive in it. Am I the only one who hates driving in rain?).
