A purpled rainy day

It was hot last night, and the wind was blowing so much we closed the windows and turned on the air conditioner.
I had a rather difficult time sleeping.I woke up to a grey rainy day; with one of those all day soaker rains so rare and appreciated in my Utah desert home.
I have a perverse fondness for an occasionally rainy day. It’s the kind of day that leaves me with a desire to curl up with a good books and a plate of cookies. Since there were not cookies to be had in the house and I had a deadline this morning I didn’t get to indulge this impulse.
But the standing Thursday afternoon Relief Society Presidency meeting was canceled, which gave me a few extra hours this afternoon, always a bonus.
I used my extra time to go grocery shopping. I also dropped by Scrappily Everafter to pick up some materials for the make and takes I will be demonstrating Saturday for National Scrapbook Day. Once I figure it out, I’ll post a photo on my blog.
I noticed the raindrops on rose leaves this morning.
This afternoon when I was unloading groceries the sun came out and sent all the drops a sparkling. So I dumped the groceries on the table and went on a short photographic tour of my back yard.
As I wandered I discovered a bunch of blue/ purple / pink flowers. They seem to go together in kind of a photo essay, a purpled rainy day.
Or something along those lines.

Cute purple prose and flowers! I love it. We heard on the news about come poor little kids that tried to stay out all night in the cold and drizzle. It's good news that they are OK.
