“The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you’d just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency.” ~Susan Allen Toth, England For All Seasons
Plants are lucky. When it rains they get to stay in their beds, relaxing the whole day. Reading a good book is out, though…it would get soggy.
However, I’m glad I’m not a plant. If I choose to stay in bed a while longer during a rain, I can drink tea, eat a scone or read a book. That would be relaxing.
