Finally, it rained here in Maryland this evening. The sky darkened and a gentle rain began to fall. It lasted a good hour and when I went outside just now, the grass didn't crunch beneath my feet. It was soft and verdant and the daylilies by the edge of the garden were dripping.
I didn't know until now that The Who's song, from the Quadrophenia rock opera is actually saying Rain O'er Me. I always thought it was Rain On Me. Silly me.
I smell wet doggie fur. George has been out in the rain chasing cats. I was going to say wet puppy fur, but somebody has a birthday coming up. Yup. The black & white, as my husband calls him, is going to be the Big One Oh on the 11th.
I see you, little bug, on the edge of the daylily.
can bring the rain
that makes you yearn
to the sky,
Only love can bring the rain
that falls like tears
from all high.
I can't sleep and I lay and I think
The night is hot and black as ink
Woo Oh God I need a drink
Of cool cool rain.
Love the water on the flowers. Lily's are one of my absolute favorites.
Missed you guessing game tonight.
See you tomorrow.
I love these pics. They are beautiful, inspiring really. Inspiring me to what? I don't know but I'll figure it out.
One of my favorite songs...great shots, too!
Isn't amazing how something as simple as rain, can cleanse the earth, add sunshine to our life, and inspiration to our soul? I love the rain...when it comes! Walking the Pacific Ocean beaches ~In the rain ~ are my favorite memories! Thanks for sharing your pix, the song, and thoughts!
Beautiful thoughts and images. I love that little bug wandering around on the petal.
Gorgeous photos, Kate! Funny, but I thought the same thing about that Who song...
We got the rain, too, but it did nothing to lower the humidity... I think we are in for a hot summer!
