Farewell to Summer


It's the last hurrah in the gardens around Seattle. The light is dwindling earlier, yesterday the midday sun was bright, the air crisp, tree leaves beginning to turn red and amber, and the last blue-sky blooms were saying goodbye. Today gloom and drizzle, tomorrow rain. Farewell high summer. You were glorious!

The rainy season is the one thing I do not miss about Seattle... but summers are unbeatable.

I think summer in Seattle would be perfect if it just would RAIN at least once a month.

It's such a bi-polar climate where it rains and is grey all winter and then come summer there isn't ONE drop of rain till September.

I actually have to resort to putting on my sound effect CD of a tropical rain forest to get my rain fix. This year was especially hard, since it was the driest summer on record ever.

I'm glad the rain is back...

rain = life
