Rainy Delights.

Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.~ Theodore Roethke

Has it been raining out your way?

It has been damper than damp here & so funny because it hasn't been very heavy, just a constant cold dripping but the roads flooded & we had to wade across the yard.

It has been pretty miserable.  I know because the cats have slept with their noses tucked into their tails all day long & even Kirby won't go outside unless he's desperate.  Dank & gloomy all round. And cold.  Bitterly, bitterly cold.

And yet...I have been watching with delight the lichen.  Yes, it really is that rich golden pumpkin colour. I think it's pretty lovely myself.  What do you reckon?

It's beautiful - almost flower-like!

We've had rains here too, as you know. But we're recovering. :) xxoo

The lichen does look like a flower. Gorgeous.

Yes, it has been cold. Not wet though.

So beautiful! We had hot hot sunshine here yesterday after a week with cold wind and a lot of rain. But in other parts of England they had serious flash floods yesterday - I believe a man was even killed :0\
