We’ve had a lot of rain lately. The ground is saturated, clouds of mosquitos are swarming, and tiny mushrooms are popping up throughout the neighborhood.  We woke this morning to the latest in a long, gray string of gloomy skies — but suddenly, around midday, the clouds parted and the sun came out. I was relieved that we would not be forced to use our stack of soon-to-be-chicken-coop lumber to build a boat, after all. And I was reminded of this watercolor, painted years ago when my children were small. Here are some close-ups of the cheerful critters:
