1918



After a few days rain. I sweep the path of leaves, and gifts of debris - twigs the birds leave as signposts of their presence. Early morning sun is warming and inviting to those with a passion for another day. Surely it may rain for tis the season of The Rain, but then again maybe all day long the sun will smile her broadest and sweetest, hottest.

wildflowers in pink -
names are not always tools for
appreciation

How right you are the flowers greet and entice us as they should, they welcome the rain they smile in the sun and flirt with all they can in their profligacy.
