After the rain

Wet and green
London, ON, July 2010

One of the simple joys of a rainstorm in summer revolves around walking outside after the skies have cleared. If you look carefully, you'll see all sorts of signs that the world around you has changed, subtly and temporarily, because of the passing storm.

But you have to go outside. And you have to look.

Your turn: The gentle appeal of summer rain. Please discuss.

The sound of it against my window. The way the air smells. The way the colours of the world are just a little more vivid.
