Dreaming of Rainy Days...

Is it stinking hot and dry as a bone in your neck of the woods? 

Oklahoma is parched and under a burn ban with temps of 111 degrees expected this week. Stifling to say the least. 

Our particular region is known as Green Country. Ha!  The grass is so brown it might as well be winter. And some grass is crisp-- it actually crunches underfoot.

I long for cool rainy days and puddles, don't you.

My shadow reflecting in a huge puddle...

By the way, these photos are from last April.  

Ah, glorious April showers... 

Please visit these photo meme linky parties to see fascinating photos from around the world:
