We have had warm weather. The sun has blazed down on us uninterrupted. It has gotten warm up here–slightly over 70–and people have noticed. The sky has been blue and the highland air full of winds and breezes. The rubber trees look especially prosperous, but in this weather of no plant left behind, they all do. The sun warms up the houses, but they retain neither heat nor cold for long.
Then a good rain of the steady sort last night: the quiet sound of it, gentlier; the tapping at the window; the rilling and welling of running water. And still grey this morning. Outside it smells much of the highlands (cool and humid) and there is a promise of more rain.
