i'm only happy when it rains

And though I know you can't appreciate it...I'm only happy when it rains...

Apparently August is going to be rainy.  July started out rainy, and then got sunny.  So far, August has just been wet.  

It did stop raining long enough for me to go running without getting soaked yesterday...although it ended up being quite humid and warm.

I think all of the plants were thankful for a drink...I spent almost five miles trying to find something pretty to take a picture of...everything looks kind of sad after being baked in the sun for two months straight, and anything tall got knocked over from getting rained on for two days straight.

Finally I found some happy little clovers with droplets of water on their leaves.  I'm glad I'm not the only one who is happy about the rain...
