Wet Tabletop

Birdman's forcast-
It's been rainy around these parts for the last week or so. Now, I'm no professional prognosticator, but I know what I know about weather and a pretty prolonged stretch of rain signals to me a change of a season. Yesterday's steady rain and humid conditions allowed me to open the window behind my desk and just let that air rush in. It felt nice. And in old Wilford Brimley's words 'it was the right thing to do'. This is a shot through the glass top of our picnic table on the deck. Due to some early frost warning last week, we had to get all the plants on the deck under the table. The next move will to transport them to their winter home in Portland. That undertaking will probably mean loading the SUV this evening and running the truckload of plants into Portland tomorrow afternoon. Oh, weather for the weekend in these parts: showers and rain. Maybe I better search out an outlet for some good blues rock.

  5. You take very good care of your plants; you must talk to them too. I think they'd love their photo today.

  6. The best thing about rainy, dreary weather is it makes you appreciate the sunny days more; especially the few sunny days we get in New England. Cheer up, soon everything will be snow-covered.

  9. Such a pretty image Birdman, It always feels so weird to hear you talk about winter when we're heading into a very dry hot summer, think I might almost prefer your scenario!

  11. This is the time of year when I see and read about all the wonderful changes in weather everywhere but here. If only it would happen here at the same time but, alas, we are still suffering from heat and dry air.
    Love this photo today!
