I've always enjoyed a good rainfall.
After weeks of above average temperatures and below average precipitation, the two downpours that came within a few days were very welcome.
Street-pounding, earth-drenching, flower-sparkling rain.
Everything looked happier: the bright blooms,
and the formerly-bloomed.
Clematises are one of my favourites...
and still have a certain geometric beauty after the rich, purple petals are spent.
The sun is shining again, and the flora at My Little Home and Garden is better for the preceding cloudbursts.
"Into each life a little rain must fall," wrote Longfellow. I'm happy for the recent, literal interpretation of his lines.
Thank you for your visit. If you leave a comment, I'll be sure to respond.
I'm linking with "Cottage Flora Thursday" over at Fishtail Cottage. Take a look!
