The air smells crisp and clean
Flowers droop under the weight of a hundred tiny jewels
Trees, grass, shrubs drink their fill
I throw open the windows to breathe it all in
We almost set a record today for the longest run of dry days in May/June. In fact, Seattle is usually rainy at this time of year and we were only 11 minutes shy of the record! I love rain, the smell, feel, the way the world looks so fresh and green and have so many wonderful memories sitting round the fire with my family reading, talking, classical music on the stereo, my parents sipping wine... rainy days are cozy days.
I ran outside early this morning and looked behind to find my 8 year old with his camera at the ready!
