Welcoming the day. Welcoming sunshine and flowers.
Even though August is full of warm warm days, it does bring with it the flowers and tomatoes so happily growing. Sam is learning more about growing things and that the greatest gift for these little veggies and zinnias and roses is rain and sun... more rain and more sun. And usually in August, we are always praying for more rain and more rain. Thankfully, we have already had some rain showers. It's actually very exciting when it starts to rain because we first hear it on our tin roof that covers the sunroom and the sound is like a little symphony playing.... it's a melody of sorts and some drums pattering away as well. Sometimes when Mike, Sam and I are all in the kitchen together and talking... we hear a thump, thump, thump and all say together, "It's raining!" Rain truly is a celebration during the summer months!
And we look forward to each one!
