Rock Street after the rain


 After a wet start to the weekend, the sun burst forth Saturday about 2 p.m. and left the Painted Ladies of Rock Street refreshed and ready for their close-ups.  The Victorian garden of the Fall River Historical Society was glistening with raindrops, the heavy pink heads of late summer roses bending low.  Already the holly hedge is thick with ruby berries, portent of Christmas to come.  Who can blame Lizzie for wanting to live up on The Hill?
