The Moist Season
Long stormy spring-time, wet contentious April, winter chilling the lap of very May; but at length the season of summer does come. — Thomas Carlyle
*sigh* I hope he’s right. I really, really hope he’s right.
Rain, rain, go away…and leave daffodils in your wake.
The view today
And yet, there’s still something valuable about all this rain.
Cherry blossoms, the promise of Spring.
Today’s Theme Thursday is: Season
Quote found at BrainyQuote.
I love the blossom. We’re threatened by a drought here. Can’t see the sky today – it’s too foggy.
Anji – It was threatening drought here too, but then this huge series of storms rolled in and suddenly the aquifers seems a little less in peril. I’ll send you a big slice of what I got and maybe it will help!
Funny we both wrote about the same storm even though it is not expected to move down here until Friday night. We see so little rain down here that we are looking forward to this storm and it is supposed to last until Monday morning. Living in a semi-arid area really means we rarely see much rain.
Although I must say that the few years we lived down in Panama had enough rain to last a lifetime.
Happy Theme Thursday! Thanks for playing this week.
Mrsupole – It’s a pretty big and dramatic storm! Worthy of at least two blog posts, at least!
Thanks for dropping by!
It looks like rain…
Strange enough, we have the same view today. However, it is warm. Rain in the forecast. Yuck!
Auntie – I’ll take some of that warm, please. Tis quite cold here to accompany the rain.
There are some benefits to rain, I hope. And I’m sure he’s right.

Karen – Located your blog from the I Love New Mexico Facebook page. Could you please send some of that rain our way? The photo of the blossom is beautiful. . .
Hi Bunny!! Welcome! So happy you dropped by!
I would *gladly* send you some of my rain!
