After the Rain

Yesterday morning and afternoon it rained in London.   I was inside most of the day getting stuff done so it didn’t put a damper on any of my plans.  Around five in the afternoon I noticed blue sky outside of my window.  It was a wonderful way to end the daylight hours.  I stood on my balcony, enjoyed a cup of tea, and marveled over how beautiful the sky looks after the rain.

      It’s a shame you couldn’t find your drawings.
