Some people might call the type of day we had today a lemon day - leaves a sour taste in your mouth and doesn't at all meet your expectations, especially after a couple of very nice days we had earlier in the week. Weather doesn't usually put a damper (ew, bad pun) on my spirits - I can go-with-the-flow, so to speak. And since I'm on a roll here with a bunch of clichés, how about the one of making lemonade when you're presented with lemons.
In that vein then, the lemonade was literally hanging from everything today as a light drizzle turned into a steady downpour. But I was determined to capture some of it. You should have seen me out there in the yard today - carrying a tripod with camera attached in one hand and trying to keep everything - me included - dry by holding a large candy red umbrella in the other ! Good thing we live back far from the road.
NOTE: we will be on the road for the next 2 days as we make our first foray as 'snowbirds' to Florida. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to post or visit anyone's blog during that time; I shall try my best to capture an image or two along the way, however. I appreciate your visits and comments and hope to be back in full swing by Tuesday.
