THE CHANGING SEASONS – RAINY JULY 2021

Touring My Backyard: THE CHANGING SEASONS

After a decade of drought, July set new records — at least in Worcester County — for rainfall. Depending on where you lived, we had anywhere from 12 to 14 inches of rain — and that’s just in July. June was also a big month for rain, but July really outdid every other month by raining every day for three weeks. It didn’t rain hard every day, but it rained at least a bit. Lots of thunder, too.

With the Delta variant of COVID gathering momentum, we’ve stayed home mostly. We probably would have stayed home anyway since it was raining so much of the time, but we were not feeling inspired to go to parties or other groups gatherings. Not that we are big group gatherers in the best of times.

So far, all two days of August have been lovely. Let’s hope it stays lovely all the way through the autumn. It doesn’t mean NO rain — just not every day, please!

About The Changing Seasons – FROM JU-LYNN

The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently — though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.

For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.

But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.

There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.

  4. your wonderful collection of truly stellar pics makes, me thinks, more than up for not turning up at large gatherings, with or without rain.

    • There aren’t many large gatherings around here anyway — other than churches. Whatever there is are mostly aimed at people with children. Though we do have a new ballpark in Worcester we are planning to check out. I don’t think we’ll check it out this summer. Too much COVID hanging around. Pity because our team is winning, so it would be a great time to be there — at least once.
