Yesterday for a glorious hour between 5 and 6 p.m. and with impending rain, we had Monet's jardins de Giverny to ourselves. It just began to sprinkle as we left at closing time.

Not a soul in sight.

En province, la pluie devient une distraction. --Edmonde et Jules de Goncourt, extract from Idées et Sensations

In the country, rain becomes a distraction.
