drip, drip, drop


It rained today, a little April shower.

I didn’t get any photos of the rain today, but here is a photo from March. I liked the way the drips lined themselves up. (And now I like the way we no longer have snow on the ground. We were away for the weekend, and the last of the snow had departed by the time we returned.)

The drips and drops remind me of the song “Little April Shower,” which I loved as a little girl. We had the record (it must have been a single) and I used to play it over and over on a little plastic record player. I’d do a little dance (not shown). Here is the clip of the song from the Disney movie:

As an adult I have enjoyed the Natalie Merchant version off the album Stay Awake. I can’t believe that even that album is now over 25 years old.

  1. Your photo is beautiful. I watched the entire video of the song and don’t remember a note or a scene of it! How did I miss that one?

    And I’m sure that I speak for everyone when I say that we’d love to see a video of you doing your dance to this song. You do remember the steps, don’t you? :-)

  2. Oh! I love that photo!

  3. Wow, those drops look like quicksilver!
