Finally it rained, lots. We really needed it and you can tell from the pictures that the plants loved it. Culturally, we tend to emphasize the negative. We associate rain with a cold gray gloomy day. But what would we do without it? It is good to consider the positive aspects of things. The pearly raindrops on the leaves looked beautiful and nature's colors became vibrant again. The rain drops that had collected in the lupine leaves looked like crystals. The world becomes different when we appreciate the beauty in everything.
