I wish I could say that I've had opportunities to take rain photos this week here in Central Kansas. Our wheat crop could use a long, deep drink of water as the heads fill.
Today's theme for the Leap Into Spring Photo Challenge is rain and water. Since last night's chances for rain showers bypassed our farm, Randy plans to swath some alfalfa today. So maybe we'll get rain after all. (You can send your thank you notes to the County Line because swathing often leads to moisture. And believe me, we'll be OK with it, too.)
So, while I wait for rain to fall around here, I've pulled together some of my favorite rain photos from the past. Hope you enjoy them and the quotes I've found to go with them.
And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down.
Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
April showers bring May flowers.
Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unraveled from the tumbling main...
~Thomas Lovell Beddoes
All was silent as before -
All silent save the dripping rain.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head
with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
