It's raining again.
But it's okay because every time it stops for a couple of hours, I go out and take shots of gorgeous little droplets sitting all over the place. Just hangin' out.
Today I went for a stroll up in the North Hills, and got pretty soaked. But I went out to visit the sheep that are working up there. Their job is to eat the invasive plants like spotted knapweed. This picture is from the hike I took over the weekend, when the sun was actually out. I didn't get as close to the sheep this time, but they were still there, munching away.
This guy was one of three identical sheep dogs who also had a job, keeping an eye out. It was funny and pretty cute to come across all these animals working on their very specific jobs, without any human supervision.
Even though it's raining, there's a new wave of optimism that comes with June. It is certain that it will be sunny and warm, very soon. And it is also certain that picnics by the river, the re-emergence of freckles, root beer floats, and summer concerts are all on their way.
I can't wait!
Happy, happy June!
p.s. Remember those elephant stickers I promised, weeks ago? They're finally up. Go look.
