The autumn rains in NW Washington start any time from mid August to, this year - late October. This is a strange year - a long warm summer, followed by a long warm autumn - and still we have sunny and warm days in between the rain storms - and it is almost November. I'll take it - no complaints here.
But when it rains - sometimes it is beautiful and peaceful - often a soft dripping rain, and other times a heavy rain - both give us the rain we need to keep our state the "Evergreen State".
A few drops - the leaves wait
Soaking up the drops
Dripping with droplets - quenching their thirst
Water will drip down to the roots - more leaves will grow next year
Ahh the joy of rain on autumn leaves.
