Roses are red ... Violets are blue

After 3 days of torrential rain, flash floods and gloomy skies, the sun is playing hide and seek with the clouds.

This also means balmy, humid weather with streaks of sunshine peeking one moment, then a few minutes later, a heavy downpour rattles the rooftops.

So one instant, I'm wearing leggings because my knees get cold (yes visible sign of old age creeping in!). The next instant, I start to sweat so off with the leggings, in with the shorts.

My oh my, the weather is quite fickle minded just like a woman and her numerous moods!

On days like these, I channel positive thoughts. Lately, visions of the City of Pines with its cool climate, lush greenery and foliage come to mind.

It helps alleviate my weary mind!

I'm tired of this weather. I'm not as fond of the rain as I used to be when I was younger.

I wish our small garden is blessed with all those lovely colors.

Sorry to hear that Kayni. Yes I read about the heat wave in that part of the US. Keep cool!

Awww Rach yes it seems our interests and preferences vary once we get older.

I'd love to have a pocket garden some day! :D
