and the rain came down

I woke to the sound of something unusual.  What was it?  I knew I had heard it before, but could quite make it out since it was so long ago and came very lightly.  
Oh, it's got louder.  Now I knew .... this sound was a reason to go back to sleep.  It was a sound of happy flowers and lettuce.  It was RAIN.  Very softly, then getting stronger.  I
It came and went all day, into the night and again the next day.  It was an inconvenience, but a much awaited one.  
Now it feels like "FALL" is here.  I actually have to stay in, not because I have something to do, but there's not much to get into on a day like this.
