I was rreminded yesterday as I sat in front of my apartment how wonderful nature is. We caught a piece of that tropical storm that hit the eastern coastline a few day ago. There was just enough of the disturbance left to give New England a good long soaking. There was zero wind as I watched the rain coming down outside my bedroom window. It fell straight down to the earth without as much as a single leaf moving. The flowers, trees and grass soaked it up like a sponge, eager for the drink nature provided.
As a result of that rain our backyard flowers popped open in all their glory. The colors were extraordinarily brilliant as if to smile at those who viewed them. It was a good day!
