We have a great weather today, but here in the south of France, we've had the rainiest year since the thirties! We're not used to it at all... The good thing is that the country is incredibly green and even more beautiful than usual with all that water, and it was much needed after several years of drought.
More umbrellas to celebrate these rainy months!
In French we say "parapluie" (protect from the rain) and "parasols" (protect from the sun). And we also have the word "ombrelle", that's not very used anymore. The word "ombre" means "shadow".
