“Rainy day people always seem to know when it’s time to call
Rainy day people don’t talk, they just listen till they’ve heard it all…”
(Beautiful song, worth a listen – http://www.songlyrics.com/gordon-lightfoot/rainy-day-people-lyrics/)
We’ve been lucky the last couple of weeks – we’ve had quite a bit of rain. 🙂
There are always predictions – the wind didn’t blow in August, so it’s going to be a dry year; the winter was very cold, so we’ll have lots of rain, etc., but basically you never know what kind of rainy season you’re going to have. Even if it starts off this good, our actual rainy season is later in summer and it might not rain enough then. But I’m all for living in the moment (or at least trying to!), so I’m very happy with the rain we’ve had. Parts of the country have actually had floods, which is unfortunate.
As I’ve told you before, I LOVE rainy weather! I don’t mind if it rains for a week without a break. I find the cosiness of snuggling up under a blanket with something hot to drink and a book, very appealing. And, like I’ve also mentioned before (probably a few times…), I really don’t like hot weather, so I’m a happy camper at the moment! 🙂
And because I love clouds, and rain, and nature, and trees, I’ve been taking a lot of pictures of clouds gathering before the rain, trees with clouds, the veld with clouds, etc. So I picked one pic for this post. I don’t think it’s the best one, but with so many to choose from, it’s difficult to decide.
Tree before the rain.
I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree, or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines. ~Henry David Thoreau
Well, not quite, since we hardly ever get snow in South Africa, and much less here, but I think you get what I’m trying to say! 🙂
I’ve tried not to do cow and calves for a while, but I won’t be able to contain myself much longer, since we’ve had quite a few babies born in the last while – the youngest yesterday morning. Daisy and Mom are back with all their friends and it was a very happy reunion! So watch out for another Cattle Post!!! 🙂
