A Study in Raindrops

Guess what? I've been distracted by the garden again! Drizzly rain leaves the finest of raindrops everywhere. Magical - even on a dull day.

  2. Lovely! We have had a quite hard frost last night, I am hoping to get some pictures if the battery charges before the sun melts it all!

    Cameron - it shows even a dull day can be good for taking photos!

  9. Hi Amy - we get so much rain I thought it best to celebrate it for once! Especially when it leaves cobwebs looking like jewelled necklaces.

  13. Hi VP,
    I've been blog-hopping, from comment to comment...wow, it sure takes up time doing this (!). Anyway, since I'm here I thought I'd say hi...and tell you how interesting (and pretty) your recent grouping of photos looks! Such simple scenes in nature that we might otherwise miss, or take forgranted. Thanks for capturing and making such beautiful collage! Jan
