let it rain

After a long, dry winter, the garden bows and say ‘thank you’ for the rain.


Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
~ Langston Hughes

  1. A gorgeous set of images made all the more stunning by the presence of the raindrops. A lovely quote too. I do so enjoy your lovely articles. Bless you.

  2. Yes … my wife has always said that she can hear the plants giving thanks when, after a long period without moisture, there is a change in the weather. She claims that during the summer months, with the windows open, an almost audible sigh can be heard when the rains finally come. Where are you? The foliage looks to lush and green. Here in Pennsylvania the spring has only just started. D

    1. Your wife is an excellent listener. 🙂
      We are in the Sacramento Valley in Northern California where winter lasts a little over two months. I’ve lived your east coast winters. You can keep them!
