Self Portrait Challenge - Perseverance

It has been raining just about every day here in north Texas, for at least a month now. Not all day, but at some point during almost every day. It is so unusual, and has caused lots of flooding, as well as messed up lots of plans!

We had planned to go peach picking today with our girls. We decided that despite the grey clouds overhead, we were going to follow through with our plans anyway, rain or shine, since we've been cooped up too much lately. We sure are glad we did, because it was beautiful, even though we got wet and muddy. Heck, that may have been the best part :)

And so my Self Portrait Challenge photo for the week, to follow this month's theme of "Water - Air - Earth - Fire" is definitely earthy AND watery...





Now, here's Nicole, who jumped right in & didn't let the mud stop her:




And here's the picturesque scene across the overflowing pond that is on the orchard property:
