Walking in the rain

I woke to the sound of thunder.
A gentle Autumn rain was falling.

So I went walking in the rain.

The walnuts had fallen.

That first photo is excellent! If you have any rain left, send it my way. Getting kinda dried here. Even I'm looking for a rainy day.

Dear Cathy,
Thank you. the firebush is turning and is always so bright even in the rain.
The weather patterns have changed. I am glad we are getting some needed rain.
I love rainy days.

I loved the walnut photo. The first home we bought had walnut trees all over the property making walking about the yard tricky :} ... the squirrels of course loved them and I can remember rushing to pull in the laundry when the squirrels would be in the trees peeling away at them (walnut juice is almost impossible to get out) :-}

Dear Deb,
The Walnut trees down the street always drop their walnuts around Harvest Moon. My father grew walnut trees in his front yard. His idea was each of his children could harvest their tree and sell it for college money. We never did that, but I think it was a charming idea. My mother was very unhappy about the walnut tress. She also could never get the "black" off the carpets.
Nuts and seeds, ahh... the joys of Autumn.

Dearest One,

I so love the rain, and walking in it is one of my favorite things on earth.

This is a very lovely post and a wonderful walk today. Thank you.

Dear Sprite,
This was a gentle rain. While I walked it was sprinkling. Autumn showers that wash the Summer and refresh the soul.
Thank you for walking with me each day.
