When its summer, I actually love rainy days. Everything is a little greener after an afternoon shower. I love the smell of wet pavement, the way the sunlight is a little less scorching and a little more golden when it peaks out from the grey clouds. It reminds me of going to Busch Gardens with my mother when I was younger. We would often plan our Busch Gardens days around thunderstorms. There were never any lines for rides after one!
Anyway, to make a long story short: rain in the summer is awesome. Rain in the winter, not so much. Eugh, winter rain. Almost as bad as the dreaded Wintry Mix.
After today’s afternoon shower, I took a few pictures of some of the blooming plants in the backyard.
I love crepe myrtle trees!
