I totally agree. Rain just makes everything sparkle and shine.

I love the photos of the raindrops, Leslie, but that last bit of twining green brings a lump to my throat.
We're back from our travels, and this is my resting week (it always seems to take that long), but soon I have to get busy emptying out the kitchen for its refit. Then I can bore everyone for months with photos of my new kitchen. LOL

There's something mesmerizing in those drops.

I love listening to the sound of the rain at night when our bedroom window is open. Delightful.

I love sitting out on our screen porch in the summertime when thunderstorms roll through, watching the lightning and listening to the rain. (Don't worry, I don't sit out there when the storms are too close, or really intense.)

Once again, your photography is amazing. Love it.

I love your glass menagerie in your garden--I always smile when I see a glimpse of your post and know you're featuring one of your lovely glass 'arrangements'.:>)
Rain in spring is refreshing--it's almost like seeing a cartoon rendition where things just pop up out of the ground!
My bones don't mind that kind of rain nearly as much as the chilling fall/winter kind.

I love your hanging colored glass as well...It reminds me of my bottle tree in the mountains....Rain drops are precious as they nourish the earth and us.....

I love the shot of the tiny green tentricals....signs of new life....

The rain-kissed rainbow glass is exciting to see! We had some rain here this week too... it's been dry here as well, which might be hard to imagine. ;o) Happy Days, Leslie ((HUGS))

Yes, things are beautiful when they've been washed clean. I especially love the first photo with the water dripping off those bottles.

Kala said...

They are all lovely, refreshing images of spring. Thanks for sharing.

I bet your yard is full of sparkling little treasures...I'd love to see this colored bottle line-up! Gorgeous colors, great photography, Leslie :)

We've had too much rain this month, but in the brief dry spells between, spring looks really lush!
