Rain Over-Staying Its Welcome

March 28, 2016

“Every week, some unannounced low pressure front trundles in from the Pacific.  They come like a parade of newly widowed aunts.  All of them have weepy tales to tell.  They stay too long and are soon indistinguishable from one another.”
— Bill Richardson, Bachelor Brothers Bed & Breakfast

    We’ve moved at warp speed into flowering, now. I thought of you on Saturday, when I bumped into ditches filled with wild iris: blue, purple, yellow-ish white, lavender. Of course they’re not so plump and fancy as the cultivars, but they are delightful. I’ll have them in the blog sometime in the medium future, with some other pretty flowers. I have to identify them, first — at least, to the extent that I can!

    As always, I love your photos – particularly the Yoshino Cherry trees in the quad. However, that photo has loosed its moorings and is encroaching on the Archives list!

      I don’t know what to do about the expanded photo. A glitch that seemed to happen suddenly through no fault of my own. I am having trouble contacting WordPress support to get this fixed. Aargh. Maybe it’s time to change my layout. (I hate computer stuff.)

    what does all of that rain smell like, does each storm carry a different scent like those aunts?
