R is for........

RAIN. We've had a lot of unseasonal rain where I live, So much, that it's becoming a bit of a nuisance and people are complaining about the inconvenient weather.How soon we forget. Not that long ago we were in the throes of a drought, and complaining about water restrictions.
Rainfall is fickle. What nourishes and enlivens one day can turn into a raging destructive force the next.
Rain can cleanse. It sweetens the air and makes the landscape sparkle. It makes ducks happy, and frogs, well, they are ecstatic.

Rain, a reason for joy, a force to fear , a bringer of life - and death.

Raindrops - at their most benign

Rain is the life blood for plant, animal, insect, everything. I am not one of those complaining about the amount of rain, we have been in drought for so long I was scared we would never hear the sound of raindrops on the roof again.
Nice Photos

I'm not publishing this in health and wellness as there is no chance for comments in that category at this time, and I want to be in a position to add a comment later concerning his condition.
