The Green in June

June already and a wet one it has been so far.  While the rain has hardly been absent I can’t help but think that it is here for a reason and that we must accept it.  Yes it was a wet Coldplay concert but good it still was, yes all the plans to celebrate our birthdays in the great outdoors were shattered we still laughed with friends – we are still enjoying walking  and visiting our wet chickens (now aloud allowed to roam free).  I look at the windows and sight many times and move on.
