A Long Day

Every morning and evening I have 9 dogs to walk. Today I was particularly apathetic about it as it was raining and I really didn't want to go out. I wanted a cup of hot Constant Comment tea with a spoon of honey in it, a good book and to be under my covers. I had thought about that all day looking at the dreary skies and watching the chilly drizzle falling.

But I set out to do our nightly ritual and came to a bradford pear tree. As I stood by the tree watching my lab cross, Heidi, try to catch rain drops, I saw the petals of the white flowers falling and saw some of them landing on me. I felt my spirits lift watching her and the flower petals. Aren't there times when Mother Nature helps us? Isn't it wonderful when it can rain flowers?
