Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh Air

This morning we awoke to a storm. After several weeks without, the fresh rains have finally brought relief. This morning’s downpour bringing with it fresh air and refreshing the ground and the plants upon it. There is nothing so fresh as the smell of the air after a rainstorm – the word “petrichor” (learned from watching Doctor Who of all things) is used to describe this smell. One storm doesn’t make a rainy season but perhaps it has started this morning.

  2. We all prefer sun to rain – until deprived of rain for even a few weeks! We soon tire of too much of anything! I remember running outside with my little girls to stand in the rain after a drought of only a few weeks back in the 70s. I wonder if Anita remembers that!
