Timeless raindrops

... finally a day with a decent amount of rain ...

Weather means more when you have a garden. There's nothing like
listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in and
around your lettuce and green beans.

Every year it seems to me I hear complaints about spring.
It is either
"late" or "unusually cold," "abnormally dry" or "fantastically wet,"
for no one is ever willing to admit that there is no such thing as a normal spring.
(Thalassa Crusso)

And what better to polish up these photos than music itself ...

Yepp, rain may be really beautiful. Especially just after it has stopped and there is a light haze in the air.

By the way, the quote about spring is so true.

Such beautiful photos, and I love the quotes. So true! We finally had a really good rainstorm (and snowstorm too!) this week. It's grassfire season, soon to become forest fire season, so I'm glad for any precipitation.

Wonderful photos! I love the look of rain droplets collected on a petal or a leaf.
