... and this!
Now I didn't want to get my hopes up, but I couldn't help but smile. There was that delicious, delectable hint of rain in the air. After the searing temperature the last few days, there was also a welcome coolness and freshness to the air.
From somewhere in the deep dark depths of my Walt Disney movie watching soul, came the memory of a song called "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Zip-A-Dee-Day!" I've been humming it ever since.
The rain did fall. Well, I won't get carried away with the use of the word 'rain'! I really should say 'sprinkles of teeny tiny water drops'. Yes I went strolling under those dark grey clouds and I think at least five or so raindrops splashed my nightie in that ten-minute stroll. How wonderful.
There was a splash of moisture on the pavers out in the courtyard. There was a smattering of little puddles on the verandah. There were some gorgeous raindrops sitting on the Crossandra bloom. It didn't last too long before there was a hint of blue sky once more, but I'm feeling a little more cheerful today.
Drop by to visit Mary and join in her Mosaic Monday meme, and feel free to join in with the song that's been in my head this morning.
