Drop, Drizzle, Pour

Did I mention that it has been raining? A LOT! Even the beetles have no where to hide. It looks like a rain forest outside my window. The gardens are lush, bordering on overgrown. If it doesn't stop soon I fear the house will be overtaken by vines.
In a rare sunlit moment I captured a cloak of nature's jewels glistening on leaves.

I believe this willow was getting taller as I photographed it. Luxuriating in the dampness.
No drooping foliage in this garden.
Did I mention it was raining? Again?
BTW, the forecast for today and tomorrow? Rain.

Have a sunny Saturday, P.
Pin It!

Beautiful pictures! It's so rare for us to have this much summertime rain...I actually kind of like it--don't have to water the plants outside! Have a great weekend, Pam.
