Texas Azaleas In Bloom

All over Houston, the Azaleas are in bloom.  They make such a spectacular showing.  The Redbud trees have all but lost their blossoms now so the Azaleas are showing their beauty.

Has It Really Been So Long?

I am surprised that I have not posted to this blog in more than a year!  Today I could see rain drops forming on the tree outside my kitchen window.  Despite the rain and the cold, I ventured outside to catch a few falling raindrops.

How many songs can you think of that have the word "rain" or "raindrops" in them?  The first that comes to mind is, "So many raindrops.  It must be raindrops, falling from my eye-eyes," by Dee Clark.  "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."  "Singing In the Rain."  "Kentucky Rain."  "Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head."  "It Never Rains in Southern California."  "I'm No Stranger to the Rain."  "Smoky Mountain Rain."  "I Love A Rainy Night."  "Here Comes the Rain Again."  "Purple Rain."

OK, that's enough to get you started thinking about rain songs.  Do you have a favorite?
