(Below and two right) Yes, the little sparkly things on the pussy willows are raindrops! :)
It rained so wonderfully today!! Sometimes hard, but mostly soft and calming, and a few little rumbles of thunder every now and then. I love the rain. I just went out and walked in it, letting the drops land on my face. It was so wonderful!!! It also made everything green! I was so surprised at how just yesterday everything was still looking wintry and today it's green and springy! Also, my roses are growing!!!! Ahh, that's almost more exciting then the rain. I can't wait for my "babies" to grow and bloom so I can adore them, talk to them, smell them, look at them, and everything else a good "mommy" does. :) Along with my roses, other flowers are starting to grow, and produce buds, or have already bloomed. They are so beautiful!! I LOVE SPRING!!
