The rain has arrived at our part of the West Coast. Last weekend was very wet, we had a couple of dry days during the week and now the next storm is here, providing gray days and lots of water pouring down onto us. It's going to be a pretty wet trick-or-treatin'.
But at this time I love the rain (this relationship turns around a little bit later in the rainy season though). The air is fresh after the rain and there are so many beautiful things to discover.
Like these flowers in my garden.
... and puddles
Drops ready to fall...
... and little girls who love to play in the rain, racing their rubber duckies.
Even if they're already 12 years old.
