It’s the first day of winter and although we are not expecting snow here we have had some very welcome rain showers. Was a great opportunity to capture some raindrops on petals. They remind me of one of my favorite quotes.
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

California is desperately in need of more rain. We had an unexpected but very welcome thunderstorm last week and the way the raindrops looked on the roses was a bedazzling sight. It’s no wonder they a few of my favourite things!

Some much needed rain finally arrived in drought-stricken California this week. I took the opportunity to feed the roses and admire some late bloomers in the nearby park.

The showers increased in intensity last week for just one day, so I took a trip back to the rose garden in our local park to see what I could see.

We had some desperately needed rain showers today and I dodged the raindrops to take a few pics of the droplets on the blooms. Then got cold and ran inside for a nice warm cup of tea!

After the stormy weather this week I was very pleased to see that the roses coped. You can see why raindrops on roses are a few of my favourite things!

These delicate flowers got a good splattering of rain but managed to hold their own. Most of them are starting to fade now though.
These miniature daffodils have survived the snow in my garden and are looking rather cheerful in the rain.
Taken in a garden while on an Easter Egg hunt – never miss an opportunity to take a pic of something pretty.
