There is nothing more soothing to the soul as a soft summer rain in the early morn.  The sound of the rain summoned me from my sleep as I jumped out of bed to embrace it fully out of doors. My senses are alive as the birds rejoice in song and the trees put out a musical medley as the droplets hit the still green surface of the leaves.  As I walk in the rain, the cool sensation on my skin is the perfect remedy for 90 degree temperatures.

The plants and flowers nod in acceptance of their nourishment.

The bees are busy as the sun comes back around, ever so gently, in complete harmony with its partner in nature to go on duty.

A soft summer rain is glorious in its own right.  It is peaceful and calming and rejuvenating.  It is Mother Nature at work.

And I am grateful!


  1. I love a good summer rain too-your flowers are just lovely!

  2. Nothing better, Vicki, than a gentle summer rain.
    Your photos are very soothing to the senses.

  3. Oh yes, I'm a walker in the rain too. : )

  4. I'd love to be able to walk in the rain...but the only time it really rains here is the winter....and that's too cold. But I DO love the smell of the earth after a good soaking...especially the hot pavement!

  5. Reading this summer entry today in late October has me longing for spring. Yet honestly, I am content with this cold windy day, because I am here now in this moment at peace with your words and photos that give me the hope that the seasons will be as reliable as time is eternal.
