Here’s another little something I don’t understand…
It’s hot outside so when you garden you’re going to get soaked from sweating. It amuses me to watch gardeners hurry to finish and get back inside when a storm is brewing though. Those are the times I pull my hat down over my eyes and settle in. It feels great to get soaked with cool rain water and the ground softens enough to make it easier to pull out those weeds.
Perhaps being outside in the rain is unacceptable behavior. I think there are even sayings about your lack of intelligence for not hurrying to come inside.
A little rain never hurt anyone, but if you believe everything you hear about it and obey the silly superstitions, then you’ll never find out for yourself what you’ve been missing all along.
Life is just like that.
When you follow the crowd and you live within their fears, you miss out on this beautiful thing called living. So if you need me this summer you’ll find me outside in my garden…in the rain.
