After the Rain

 I woke up this morning to find everything still wet from yesterday's rain. 
 Wild grape vines have sprouted between the deck boards and are flourishing.
 The marigolds are soaked and drooping.
 Every leaf held large drops of rain.
 Everything sparkles on a morning like this.
 Even the weeds...
 and the grass.
 We discovered our first pumpkin hidden in the vines.
The sunflowers are eight feet tall...after the rain.
