The tulips have come and gone :::sigh::: but the iris' are in bloom now :). And you know what that means...
We had some last night, can you tell? In fact, it's been raining quite a bit these past few days. We've had flash floods and down pours since Monday.
But I'm not complaining about the rain. We need all we can get right now. Maybe it will help to keep the wildfires to a minimum this summer.
There's just something about stepping outside first thing in the morning after it has rained all night in the spring. That first inhale of air fills my senses with a feeling of renewal, and fresh starts.
At times it must sound like I have my head in the clouds, and maybe I do. Some times. But deep down I am a realist who dabbles in the fine art of appreciating the beauty I see around me. For in that beauty lies my soul.
And without my soul, I would be lost.
