Rain in MtLawleyShire

In complete contrast with yesterday’s summery temperatures, today was wind and rain and cold!

But rain – in the garden is my delight, as it leaves gems on hanging tendrils and fronds:

drops_1  drops_10

on tiny flowers and leaves:

drops_11  drops_8

hidden behind leaves they gleam and dripping from leaves:

drops_3  drops_6

clinging to woody jasmine stems:

drops_2  drops_4

gleaming in budding leaf clusters:

drops_5  drops_12

in the shadows:


and on small groups of freesias refusing to bend beneath the rainfall
