I woke up to a very wet garden.
Not one to miss an opportunity, I took my camera for a walk. Do you see the tiny vine-leaf in the drip?
When plants are weighed down with rain, everything has a different feel.
The colours are muted, and there is a silver sparkle.
There are more blues, in the greens and in the purples.
Blooms hang heavy, like they need to shake their heads.
Some look even more beautiful with wet hair.
Silver droplets cling to fringed edges.
You see flowers from new angles as the rain weighs them down.
The colour combinations change, as one stem leans into another.
The rain reveals hidden structures.
Those who normally stand tall are humbled.
There are reminders that autumn is around the corner.
We must keep smelling the roses.
Bouncing our hands off the soft Phlox,
Appreciating every new bud,
Every joy the garden has to offer.
This time is precious.
