We have been experiencing a rainy spell here in Minnesota…

It has been going on for days. I think we are all missing the sun right about now but rain does have its advantages…

It makes the whole world look like it has been covered with little bits of shimmering crystals…

raindrops on bluebells

raindrops on leaves

Little droplets of rain can turn even the tiniest blade of grass into a creation that rivals the most brilliant diamond necklace…don’t you agree?

“For after all, the best thing to do when it is raining is to let it rain…”
