What a wonderful weekend ...

We had a fantastic weekend in these parts … and not because we did anything exciting … but because it rained.

It was overcast … and dreary … and showery … and we loved every second of it.

Why Hubby was so overcome with giddy excitement at the precipitation that he grabbed my camera and decided to capture it … for history's sake.

Now please take extra special note.  

Hubby wants everyone to be aware that HE took these pictures … and when they go viral … and receive millions of hits … and a fortune in commercial endorsements  … he must receive ALL the credit.

  7. It's got to be said - they are wonderful photos! (But don't let it go to his head... Tell him he needs to get sketching or painting next, see how he does at that!) xxx

  11. To Husband. The photos are gorgeous.

    My Dad recently exclaimed that everyone was out on the street where he lives and he was telling them 'that is rain'. Enjoy the rain!
