Helios was not to be outdone by the rain this evening. No, he shone in all his glory in spite of the clouds who tried their best to douse his brilliance.
“The devil is beating his wife because she put too much salt in his soup.” That’s what Mama used to say when it rained while the sun was out.
I risked the ire of Beelzebub himself to play in the puddles that formed on the lawn.
I’m not the barefoot type, but the coolness of the wet earth proved too much temptation for my country heart to resist.
And run some more before the sun slips away and takes the golden day with it.

…and now I’m smiling Stacy, what a magical day! ❤
I love the rain. ❤
I love running through summer rain! When we were small, my sisters and I would dress in our swimsuits and play in the rain and puddles. The golden light is magical – so nice to see you having a little fun in your very own corner of the world. Hugs, xoxo
My sisters and I used to do the same thing – and it is still fun to do. ❤
The Dutch have a saying that when it rains and the sun shines; the devils have fun fair!
Lovely photos. Enjoy your new week and yes, we got heavy rain with thunderstorms daily and it doesn’t change soon..
It has been very rainy off and on for a few weeks here, too, Mariette. No complaints, though, as long as there is no property damage and loss of life. ❤
I love that quote from Frost! (and your photos!!). It’s also the title of a mystery in one of the series written by Dana Stabenow. So doubly good . . . ~ Linne
Ah – I did not know that, Linne! 🙂
Your post is magical. I agree with El Guapo. Run, run, run!
I’m running as fast as I can, Kathy! ❤

I think the Devil is just upset because he doesn’t get to live in such a beautiful place.
I think you’re right, Guap. ❤
