Rain Drops


“May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow. May the soft winds freshen your spirit. May the sunshine brighten your heart. May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you, and may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.” Old Irish Blessing






these photos are all of our Million Bells plant, with the help of the 5 minute shower that came for a quick visit, you might just SEE a Million of them soon.

Love seeing the raindrops on the flowers, Sandra. Glad you got some rain ---even for a few minutes. We need some up here where it is unbearably hot.

Can't wait to see all MILLION of the Million Bells...
Hugs,
Betsy

These are gorgeous macros of the raindrops on the Million Bells. I hope you soon have more, although not necessarily a million more!

What a lovely, lovely Irish blessing. Your photos are wonderful, as usual.

Oh, SANDRA!!!! When I got to the buds, I literally swooned! Beyond words, yet wonderful words to go with it. I'm doing a blue flower tomorrow, we missed each other by one day!

The pictures are beautiful. I can almost smell the rain... Love the bluebells. Elaine has those growing around her mailbox. They come back every year on their own.

What heavenly shades of blue and so beautiful with water droplets.
Sorry I'm so far behind with my comments, it's been so hectic around here!

I love raindrops on flowers, they are my favourite kind of pictures. These ones are really great!

Quick 5 minute rainshowers are so cool - I wish we had them here! It either rains all day... or not at all for weeks. lol
