T'was just a garden in the rain
Close to a little leafy lane
A touch of color 'neath skies of gray
The raindrops kissed the flowerbeds
The blossoms raised their thirsty heads
A perfumed thank you
They seemed to say

                                                                                                                                                                 

I wonder if anyone else in the English-speaking world remembers that old song from the 1950's. Pretty hokey lyrics. I only thought of it today because I am in Maine now—arrived yesterday—and after storms during the night, today it is misty and all the flowers are heavy with drops of water. But it is so beautiful.
