It's raining, It's pouring.....




It's been raining for two days now....
{Shall we build an ark????}

Oh but no I am not complaining!
We need the rain...
the strawberries are forming their fruits...

rain means plump juicy berries!
The corn is planted and growing...
the trees, flowers, grass,

and wildlife all need the rain!

In our little town

down by the river

they have a walking path
that runs along the rivers edge!


Hubby and I went for a spontaneous

walk in the rain!
{no umbrella included}

Singing "rain drops keep falling on my head"...

It was fun!

The rain was gently falling,

we had the path to ourselves,

No one in sight,

not a care in the world!



We felt like kids again!
Splashing in the puddles

and putting our feet in the water!



Holding hands and walking in the rain......

I even got to search thru a patch of rocks

for a few heart shaped rocks!
~~That makes my heart sing~~
{I collect heart shaped rocks}

What a way to spend a rainy dreary afternoon!

Note>You don't have to be a duck to enjoy the rain!{Giggle}

Hugz, Dolly

Lovely pictures and a lovely idea! We have been getting quite a lot of rain in my little corner of Texas lately. We are so grateful for it, too!

You're an adventurous girl- I think that much water is kind of scary! I love the heart rocks- once you start looking for them, it's really amazing how many you can find!

What a lovely post, Dolly. I so enjoyed your little walk in the rain. I'm glad you took your camera, too. Thanks for sharing! You always make my day special with your wonderful insight.

How cute is the photo with your feet! Hope you found some good rocks. We have had WAY too much rain where I live. We're having trouble getting the crop in. Oh well, glad you got the rain you needed!

I appreciated your visit to Day Lily Lane. I live in Lake Orion and work with Kathy from Kathyscottage. I have visited you several times and always love your photos. I too love heart shaped things. I don't have many rocks, but I do have picture frames and lots of boxes. I especially like fancy boxes. Always have, don't know why I just do. It's nice to have Michiganders stop in to visit! Come over anytime! I hope to add more updates soon. Hugs Jan
