A rainy kind of beauty

It’s been a rainy summer —

Which means pretty pinkย petals

Blowing in the wind;

Hyancinth

Roses glowing

With rain jewels;

Rainy rose

And vivid splashes

Of sunny petals.

Pansy copy

And after the rain,

Blossoms unfurl

In delicate rays of sun.

Pink

  1. Love the Blooms, Lady Fi – Alas, the rain has flooded our world in the last few days. We’ve officially had over 7″ and expect 2 more today. People are using canoes and boats to get around what is normally dry land.

  6. The drops look so refreshing. It has been a very uncharacteristically un-rainy summer season in my West Coast neighbourhood and the flowers and I sure have been missing it.

    We are in the midst of the rain right now, which is a wonderful relief after the heat. It was so thick I knew it would be raining. Sadly most of my color is gone from the heat, except the grass. It seems to grown no matter what I do to it. Ha. Lovely yellow flower you have there.

    I am well. Just finished my masters and I am about to head out on vacation with the family to Miami. We will be traveling through the Everglades a bit. A fun little adventure. It’s nice to know I am missed though.

    Smiles.
