I'm singin' in the rain * Just singin' in the rain
What a glorious feelin' * I'm happy again.
I'm laughing at clouds. * So dark up above
The sun's in my heart * And I'm ready for love.
Let the stormy clouds chase. * Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain * I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane * With a happy refrain
just singin' * singin' in the rain
dancin' in the rain...I'm happy again... I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain...
(song lyrics from Singin' in the Rain by Freed and Brown)
At least the peonies are... singing and dancing that is. They're just
reaching their peak blossoms. The white "Maxima" peony isn't far behind.
And even in the rain, I can't help but be happy when I look at these peonies, covered in rain droplets. And perhaps now, if you're in a grey and dreary spot, you too are happy and humming to a little memory of Gene Kelly or for younger readers, perhaps Glee.
Thankful it's a short work week,
PS - Rumour has it (or was it the weatherman) that we are to have sunshine and 70's this weekend....
