The rain returned

It has rained on and off for most of the day. 
We walked between showers. 
The dithering clouds were ash-gray one moment
and white as gauze the next.
The humidity was lickable. 
On the second lap, 
I noticed a pink Rose-of-Sharon blossom 
at one corner of the house.
Before we reached the apple tree
The rain returned.


  1. Beautifully written. I used to say that we could carve out the humid air in Illinois. Such a lovely flower! I have never seen Rose-of-Sharon before.

  2. Lickable air needs ice cubes!

  3. I love your description of your day. Today was a beautiful day of some sun and clouds with a nice breeze and the temp was around 74..perfect.

  4. Well I can do Susan above one better. I have seen that flower before, but did not know the name. ;-)
    Well I guess you will send that rain this way, we probably need it.
    The best to you guys. You did good on the picture, it is beauiful.

  5. That is a truly stunning photo.
    Humidity? Bleah.

  6. "Humidity was lickable" … I like that! Having endured desert living so long, I'm still enjoying it.

  7. I low Rose of Sharon's they are lovely. How nice to have one close by. I used to have them planted like a hedge in my yard and do miss them,

  8. It gets humid up here too. I always feel like I'm molding!
