After the rain

Rainy and cool today, reminds me of days on the Oregon coast. And a cedar deck, filled with flowers, just after the rain. Flowers that need extra moisture, the morning dew, mist and fog to grow, to thrive.

Last night I dreamed of receiving a card from a woman. Upon opening the card, multi-colored, magical confetti sprang out, floated in the air like tiny kites. "It’s a special gift," she told me.

And today, the colors of newly blooming roses glowed in the rain.

Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear.

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

Thank you for the help with my blog check, if it weren't for you, it would still be broken. My blog should be much more interesting now that the flash files are working.
That is a great picture BTW, it is just bristling with colorful life...
