After The Rain: Raindrops


Rain has a cleansing effect.
 Making the flowers glisten. 
Capturing raindrops is a little bit like chasing rainbows. 
There is a small window of opportunity.
 I am not proficient at either task but that does not stop me from trying.












happy gardening

  5. They are all great photographs and I especially like the first one, very nice little arrangement too.

    Have you ever captured steam from a hot dish. R.H. tries that all the time and thinks he's got it but it doesn't show up well. The other night he sat out on the deck and tried to capture wind! Never could quite get that!

  7. Oh how beautiful! That's one of the reasons I like to have my houseplants live outdoors during the summer. It's so good for them and gives them such a boost!

  23. Everything does look prettier after the rains have stopped. Your pictures prove that. It's nice to see the sunshine again and be able to get back into the yard. My husband is working on ours this morning too.
