Rainy Day Lanes

Its raining , that fine drizzly rain rain that get you wet , not that summer cooling down rain but misty rain. It's not quite the rain of Autumn yet when the colours take on a glow of their own , and you can smell the dampness. It doesn't matter if it's raining does it really take my journey home today for example I ran into an grandad taking his granddaughter for a walk and she was merrily splish splashing in puddles.

You wouldn't have though she had broken her leg at the start of summer!" he said

"They don't care, they just get on with it"  he concluded

I exchanged a few pleasant words with him and went on my way .

I still managed on a day like this to get a few stunning pictures because beauty doesn't stop for the weather does it now ....


  1. I love walking in the rain. Not heavy soak-you-immediately rain that's accompanied by strong winds, but steady rain or drizzle is quite comforting in a way. It's raining here right now and I'll be cycling home along the river in an hour or so - I'm looking forward to it in a strange sort of way. It makes that cup of tea when I get in all the nicer.

  2. That reminds me, I really need to get a proper waterproof coat for this winter, to deal with soggy mornings on the school run. This time of year, the rain really does bring the world back to life, doesn't it? (And it stops the sparrows having a dust bath in my daffodil bulb patch)

  3. Oh I do love puddle jumping - you've given me renewed enthusiasm for rain!
