Rainy Days and Mondays . . .

. . . always make me feel good.
Well, sorry Karen Carpenter
of that old song.

It rained hard the night before.
I prayed that it will not get flooded in the city
because, most of the time, it does after a night of rain.
But not in our place though.

There is something crisp and fresh in the air
plus it reminds me
that somewhere, someone
needs a hug . . .

. . . and rainy days make it a perfect time to indulge!
PS. By the time I finished posting, the sun came out ;-)

Lovely post Lui. The flower and raindrops are pretty. Pleased it didn't flood - hugs are good but not floods...

You know very old song! I like her song of Top of the world.
Walking in the rain is very good too.

I actually love rainy days too Lui!
As long as they are not rainy AND cold. Your photographs here are beautiful. I especially love the first one. You caught that at the perfect moment!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful day!

Pat said...

Beautiful images, Lui. I love the way a good, hard rain seems to wash everything clean - including the air!

Karen said...

I like that perfect little drop in the first shot!

Love those raindrops!
I am ambivalent about the rains. I have had some hard experiences with the monsoon when I was in Mumbai. But I love them when I am cozy and indoors :)

Viola said...

Gorgeous pictures Lui!! What a very lovely raindrop with reflection in it, on the first picture!! =) And the 2nd pic looks like the plant is floating, so to spek.. floating beyond water.. The 3rd one nearly reminds me about a horse!?.. :)) And the last one- just awesome green leaves with crying raindrops..

Warmly, Viola :)
and thanks for your and Sweepy's very lovely comments! :)

Hi Lui,
Your images certainly capture the beauty and refreshing nature of a rainfall!!! I'm looking forward to our first spring rain.... but for now, we have more snow forecast. Enjoy the loveliness at your house:)
Happy week to you!

Another rainy day lover here :) Your photos are beautiful and thanks for stopping by my 'dream' post. I enjoyed reading your comments and think there is a lot of truth to them.
