rain rain rain rain

It has been raining a lot here. I mean a lot. It is great for the newly planted garden and the sod. But it can get a bit old. I much prefer hearing the rain at night, so soothing.

I saw this photograph and it conjured up such feelings of innocence and motherly love. I bought Miss F her very first raincoat on Sunday, and she has been using it every day since then. She adores it. Her sleeves are rolled up to her elbows as well. Makes me smile. Makes my day, even in downpour.
