I’m not quite sure how much it has rained during the months of May in June, here in Charlotte, but let’s just say … it’s a lot. It only seems to stop raining just long enough for the neighborhood association to drop a letter in my mailbox, a ‘friendly reminder’ that I need to cut my grass. Yeah! Right! I’ll do it as soon as it has a chance to dry out, just a little bit. Wet grass doesn’t cut well. I’ve been keeping up with the grass cutting duties, so to speak, by cutting the front. The back, well, that’s another story. It gets cut, but not quite as often as the front.
Yesterday, thankfully, it didn’t rain in the evening so I was able to get out, get some nice sunflower shots, donate a bit of blood to the mosquitos, and not even get wet! Bonus! Today, I noticed some promising clouds, pretty much rain clouds, but I thought that I’d chance it. I headed on down to Lake Wylie, hoping that the clouds would break a bit and give me an interesting sunset over the lake. No such luck. It stayed gray, gray, gray. However, I was able to spend my time looking at the roses that were growing along the railing. They were quite vibrant, sporting nice droplets of water, and adding a bit of color to an otherwise not-so-colorful day. Also, I was the only one in the park. No surprise there considering how the skies looked and, add to that, it has just rained pretty hard not even 30 minutes before.
It made for another nice evening and, of course, more Blues music was had! Speaking of Blues, B.B. King will be in Columbia, SC on July 18th. I’m thinking about going! Talk about an evening to remember!
