R is for Rain!

And plenty of it! It’s been a long time coming,but we are finally getting our blooms of spring.  Too bad it keeps raining though. It makes it hard to get out and enjoy it all.  I ran out between the showers today and snapped a few photos of the lush green and beautiful colors.

Last week we had several rainy days that were really needed. 

 The temperatures have been cooler and it was beginning to feel fall like way toooooo soon for me. 

 

It has finally stopped and they are predicting sunshine and warm weather for the next 6 days or so. 

 Whew.  I thought maybe summer had ended. 

 

Luckily between the raindrops,

 I was able to shoot a few pics of my flowers,

wet as they were.

They are  pretty in a different way than usual. 

Dreary weather and rain change the perspective a bit,

 

but there is no denying their beauty,

in any light.

 ~I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains.  One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge, but one misses a world of loveliness.  ~Adeline Knapp
