My Favorite Things – Rainy Sunday Edition

The rain has been coming down all day.  It was just the day for a movie with friends and then a quiet stroll home.  Here’s what I saw…

Buds reaching for the sky…

and, nearer the earth, ladybugs busy at work.

Along embassy row the flowers were a bit more forbidding…

But, in the park love was blossoming.

The fountain was empty, but there was enough water coming down to fill it.

The buildings of Central Park West floated like a mirage above these red branches…

And, she seemed to fit in here.

Meanwhile, his umbrella was threatening to give up…

And, this one joined umbrella heaven.

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”
