Sunday Stroll


April Rain Song

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head
with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.

~Langston Hughes

The rain has been playing little "sleep songs" on our roof day and night since late, late on Friday. The grass is so green now and the brown earth drenched. I can't wait to see how the garden reacts to all this sustenance, once the clouds roll past!

If you have time to stroll today, and if your weather permits, please post about about it on your blog and then come back here with a comment and a link to your post. You may use the Sunday Stroll button at the top of this post on your post or side bar if you would like. I will add participant names to this post so other strollers can walk through your garden too.

Look who's strolling:
Mibsy at Classical Calling
Ruth at Musings of an Everyday Woman
Cloudhands at Uncarved Block
Margaret at Periodic Pearls
Me, here at The Quiet Country House
Tabbie at Tabbie's Garden
Jena at Becker Farms

I cannot tell a lie, I strolled yesterday. But, it was the only way to show the rain barrels. Come see.

I strolled on Sunday to the point of exhaustion. As a result, my post did not get made until 2am Monday morning. http://tabbiesgarden.wordpress.com/2009/04/27/sunday-on-monday/

I am still in the process of editing the video of my turkey chase through the woods. Hopefully I will end up with some clips worth posting.
