Rain in the Night

I was up late last night and went out to get the newspaper at 4:30am, right before I went to bed. As I stepped out, the rain started gently and it was so quiet I could hear the tap, tap, taptap and I could smell the dirt getting wet. I stayed out for a bit to enjoy it.

Earlier, I had ushered a tiny cricket out, and on the way to bed, I had to take two others out. I think I have a cricket nest somewhere.

I correspondingly slept late today and haven't done much other than watering the mum (which seems to have its flowers dying -- anybody know if that means I should throw it out?), filling the bird feeder, getting the mail, and now doing laundry.
