I sat looking out my window yesterday morning at the July gloom and thought of how amazing it would be to have rain, but it's July in Southern California and I'd have to wait until at least October. I got a little melancholy for autumn. Then it seems mother nature decided to go and prove me wrong. Sitting out on my balcony reading in the evening I started to feel the occasional drop landing on my foot and sure enough, went to bed listening to the sound of summer rain.
I don't know if there is anything better than waking up early this morning to feel the fresh summer air and smell the wonderful scent of rain drying on my neighbors citrus trees. In that minuet I felt like someone had transported me to Europe, I was instantly on vacation. So thank you mother nature for even a few hours of summer rain and the beautiful way it smells outside this morning!
