Ah, rain

Is there any sound sweeter than a much-needed rain?

I've been praying lately with Gerard Manley Hopkins, "Send my roots rain."

We had rain! Torrents with thunder, lightening and maybe a bit of hail!

We had lots of heavy rain and hail up around us yesterday, but it didn't last very long.

I love those words.

Me too, Songbird.

The rain dampened the ground a bit, but I noticed the hydrangeas were already wilted again by this afternoon.
