A slushy rain is coming down. I started out to walk up the drive to the mailbox, but came back in. The rain was freezing as it hit the ground..Call me Nervous Nellie...I don't care. There's nothing in the mail so important that it can't wait until tomorrow. Joe's not to happy about the mail sitting out there overnight...grrr. I'm sure he wishes he could go and get it.
Rain makes me think of warmer days and gardens.Rose petals with drops of rain , Squishy earth to walk on. Birds pulling earthworms out of the soggy ground. Puddles in the street. Trees dripping on us... as we walk under them. The sound of rain drops falling into a bucket. A bright colored umbrella. A yellow slicker. Wellies to keep our feet dry......and new short boots.
I splurged and bought a pair of these. I have a couple pair of crocs, but when the ground is dewy...water gets in the holes and makes my feet wet. I wanted something that I could wear to town with jeans on a rainy day. Now, I'm looking for a new umbrella to go with. These will certainly spiff up my gardening wardrobe of old jeans, chambray shirt, pillow ticking denim garden jacket and sometimes a hoodie underneath. Hope I don't scare the wild life in my yard! Remember March 20th is Spring.
