storm clouds and dandelions

There are some days where all you have to do is look up, and you know you are in for it.

I remind myself that the rain is a good thing, washing the pollen from the air, making spring things grow bright and beautiful – even as I stand beneath a storefront awning, trying to wait out another thunderstorm before riding home.  Oh well.

Yesterday I had to be out in it; today I really didn’t need to be anywhere, but despite the rainy forecast, I wanted to take a quick ride to a nearby field I had passed yesterday.  Red clover and wildflowers were out in abundance, my time was my own, and I wanted to play with my camera.  But before I was even a mile down the road, the rain began to fall again.

No fields of red clover today … only a few dandelions in my yard.  I’ll have to wait out the rain once again.  Sigh.
