Rain for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 6: R is for Rut



.

Several sunny days in May are now memories
 as the rainfall returns and gives evidence
that winter is reluctant to turn over the reins.

Ah, the rain! It's back here in Seattle today and will be for several more! Spring came very early this year now it seems unsure that it made the right choice! Darn! I surely was enjoying the sunshine! Hope your sun returns soon! In the meantime, have a great week!

I'm with you 100% on the rain issue. This is the wettest April and May in the last 3 years here in the Sacramento area.
I like the raindrop picture you have posted.

Spring faltered over here, too, but I think it's getting back on track.

Rain? What's that? We hardly get that here and I do miss it.

Amy said...

Will the rain never go away? The only good thing about it is that one doesn't need to water. The poem is lovely as is the photo!

After the blistering heat of March and April, rain has returned to us too - with a vengeance.
Still very warm though.

Yes, we are stuck in a rut here as well. It's rained every weekend and most of the week for a solid month! And the temps have been unseasonably cool. What a lovely lily you chose to wear the raindrops. It looks like a little bit of sunshine.

Joy said...

Ah yes rain can be tiresome but looks lovely on flowers and yours is a optimistic sunny yellow. In the style of your great end line - May the summer reign come soon:-)

The droplets on the petals, they are so beautiful We have been having so much rain, that i didn't think of rain for this post.

It's hard to appreciate the rain sometimes when we have so much of it - but the world glows brighter for it when the sun eventually shines :-)

Rain also has refreshed my world this May.
I am coming up your way in June on my way from Yellowstone to Portland.

"Rain" is such a good choice of R-word! Beautiful poem, exquisite close-up-photo of rain-drops on a flower. In every way a perfect R-post!

Best wishes,
