Flowers on a Rainy Day...

The severe weather that was being predicted most of yesterday “after midnight” for this area arrived here at about 2:30 this morning. And poor R stumbling around with a flashlight trying to shut windows to keep everything from getting drenched. It continued to rain off an on most of the morning, and the house was rather dark and gloomy, what with all the trees fully leafed out and the sun not shining. R went to the Farmer’s Market this morning to see if any fresh vegetables were available, and he came back with turnips, cucumbers, and a small zucchini. And a small bouquet of roses. A couple of the blooms – one deep crimson and the other, yellow in the center and pink at the edges – have the sweetest scent. Nothing quite like a rose. Thursday was our anniversary, and we enjoyed a good pizza for lunch at home, but it wasn’t quite the same not being able to go out on a special date. The roses were such a special surprise. A bright spot to draw my eye as I camp out on the couch working on papers.
