Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic: Singing in the Rain

<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/optimistic/”>Optimistic</a>

In South Africa we are in the grip of the worst drought in 30 years. Water has always been in short supply in this country. Therefore rain and even the promise of rain is a great reason for optimism. After one of the hottest December months I can remember with temperatures reaching up to  45° C, it finally started raining in middle January.

As always the ability of nature to recover amazed me, Fields and gardens that lay parched in the sun suddenly burst forth in colour  and I felt like singing in the rain.
