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.”

The walk home after the bustling activity of the school run is my time for some quiet reflection and focusing my mind for the day. What’s great when I get home is that the wonders in the garden greet me and there is always something to see and make me grateful for being here.

I’ve had very little time for photography recently but I managed a quick look around the garden this morning. Nice to know there is prettiness even when there is little time to fully appreciate it.

A gathering of purple faces
Dancing in the light
Swaying gracefully in the breeze
Till they are darkened by the night

There is a lovely patch of Gazanias flowering close to the school so I went out early to take some snaps. Unfortunately I was a bit too early and they needed more time to open. The Society Garlic growing close by looked so pretty in the morning sunlight though that I wasn’t too disappointed.

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!

A few Society Garlic blooms have appeared in the garden and their long delicate stems dance gracefully in the wind. In another spot in the garden however the salmon pink and white-edged Geraniums continue to bloom barely responding to the wind.
