Rain in MtLawleyShire

It’s the last day of Winter, by the calendar at least, as Spring has been here for a couple of weeks or more.  But it is a suitably wintry day with rain and wind and gloom, though at the moment it’s sunny.

But when it rains, I love to go out with the camera and see what I can catch.  It was too windy to be really successful, but I caught a few amidst the rain and gloom.  I love it when I actually get the rain:

amidst the wind, there were moments of stillness where I caught raindrops on jasmine leaves:

on hanging remains of spider plant fronds:

on leaves of dead spider plant fronds and the ends of jasmine twigs:

on the loops limbs of jasmine branches:

on the thin fronds of tiger trees:

on the petals of a nasturtium and amongst clumps of unbowed freesia:

& then the sun came out:
