I Am A Rainy Day Gal
I love rainy days. I am very much a rainy day gal. "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
This is a good thing because God has placed me in a state well known for rainy days.I love to fall asleep to the sound of rain outside our bedroom window.
just look at some of these Hostas my husband cultivates. They bloom profusely in the summer and fall, but with foliage like this flowers are just the icing on the cake.
The Hostas peek out from under rhododendrons and Japanese Maples. Tiny miniature Hostas, large blue Hostas, bright white and green Hostas.Rainy days , good thing I love them because we are having record rainfall and low temperatures for this time of year. Of course, the slugs love the rainy days too, but this is a bonus for the ducks for it provides slugs to eat and weather they thrive in! "Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger." St. Basil
"If you never go camping without waterproof matches and a poncho, you live in Washington." Jeff Foxworthy
"For He draws up the drops of water,they distill rain from the mist, which the clouds pour down, they drip upon man abundantly. Can anyone understand the spreading of the clouds, the thundering of His pavilion?" Job 36:27-29
