Without rain, there is no life.

Jerry Yang

A Little Ray of Sunshine

PS: Although the quote fits my recent circumstances I am not being melancholy. I chose the quote because the rain started just as I stepped out of my house for a sunday afternoon walk. I almost changed my mind (about stepping out for a walk)…  I am glad I stuck with my plan I experienced some delightful pleasures along my walk including this beautiful display of pink standing in contrast with its surroundings.

Despite the rain being heavy at times I remained dry :-)

    I can’t imagine a life without rain, Cherry, but know there are places that go without it for months on end. How is that possible?

    A walk in the rain can be so refreshing – it’s just persuading ourselves that it is a good thing to do

    I cannot imagine a life without rain…we are so used to it and it is part of our system. Although it amazes me what can grow with little rain.

      We have had quite a lot of rain over here. It is more like autumn than summer.

      The weather was kind to us on our recent holiday. In fact I think we visited the only part of the country where it wasn’t raining.

    Though it looks gloomy, the pink brings life. AN inviting view. Friendship

  7. Try this one.

    You make me happy when skies are grey”

  8. Sometimes it’s nice to step out into the rain.

      I am struggling with one of my plans. The 10000 step per day plan. My 10000 mile (in a year) plan I am finding therapeutic :-)

      We have had a lot of unseasonal rain and crave a little sunshine to uplift our mood and wellbeing.
