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

~ Langston Hughes ~

January tumbled into February and brought nighttime thundershowers, and daytime downpours of rain. The ground is saturated, and the forecast holds more days of rain. 

But I don’t mind. I like rainy days. Rainy days inspire me to read and write. Nothing is better than writing while listening to the quiet sound of a gentle rain. 

I even love thunderstorms especially late at night when I’m in bed. I feel safe under cozy blankets listening to the comforting sound of falling rain. 

 I enjoy the stillness and tranquility of the garden after a night of rain. The air is crisp and fresh; the turquoise blue sky holds a brilliant sun in her hands and the green plants are brighter and full of life.

    There is beauty in the winter garden. I do look forward to pink cherry blossoms. I lost my beautiful weeping cherry last winter during a storm. It was close to the road and people actually stopped and took pictures of it when it was in full bloom. I miss it very much so I’m looking forward to see your flowering cherry tree in the spring Eileen

      Eileen, It sounds like you need to get another cherry tree. 🙂
      Maybe a Mother’s day gift?

    I love that you love the rain. I always think of the cold, damp, gloomy side of rain. You’ve given me thoughts to ponder which I will try to concentrate on the next time it rains here.
    The photos are lovely.

    A lovely selection of photos. The sound of gentle rain is soothing but thunderstorms always wake me up.
