Pouring Rain, Books, and Beauty

Last week we went to a literature festival, driving past fields of green. . .

We parked and walked from building to building, hearing from authors and illustrators. . .

I took notes while listening to Jeanette Ingold, Stephanie Tolan, Henry Cole, Leslie J. Wyatt, and Ard Hoyt. . . 

I admired a particularly fascinating tree. . . 

I appreciated this bit of sunshine on the ground, especially as it was a rainy day. . . 

I laughed as I ran through the ran and my umbrella flipped inside out. . . 

 and I took pictures from my seat in the car as we came home and beauty whooshed by. . .

because the path keeps curving and there is so much to see at every now. . .

Enjoying Warm

March wears summer weather,

allows open windows and short sleeves.

I thought this week only called for green,

but I'm enjoying this all the same.

 Pleasant weather to you~ Megan
