Rain art


I'd given up hope that any of those "scattered thunder showers" being touted on TV would ever hit my part of the city, but last night, as I pedaled away on a stationary bike at the gym, I saw the rain coming down outside.

Several of the guys were upset. Their playoff baseball game would be cancelled! They couldn't take that late-night run they'd planned! I commiserated. "That's a shame," I told them.

But woo hoo! My garden was happy. It rained for awhile, and this morning, everything looked perky and back in focus.

Speaking of focus, nothing like raindrops on a bright green begonia leaf to make yet another photo to wow your friends. Maybe not. Wows me, for sure.
