I have loved the rain for as long as I can remember.
There is peace with rain...pitter pattery wet peace.
Since I was a kid the rain has always drawn me out of the house. I would bundle up in my grandmas rain jacket, grab an umbrella and a dog and head outside ready to explore.
It always made me feel like my neighborhood was somewhere new and there would be new things to see and experience. This is how I still feel today. With the first drop of rain I am itching to get outside and see how different things will look. The clean smelling air, the sparkling sidewalks...I have always longed to find some secret pathway that lead to a secret garden.
I couldn't resist getting out and photographing my little nook of paradise and really appreciate the beauty of where I am so blessed to call home. These photos are just within feet of my front door. Isn't it pretty?
What do you like to do when it is raining outside?
