2 more pictures and a note above ! :)

It rained off and on all day long, and as I sit here typing, the rain continues to fall. At one point it was coming down very lightly, and I risked a few minutes to step out onto our back deck for some droplet pictures. We have a tea rose bush growing next to the stairs, enthusiastically growing through the cracks in the boards and pushing through the railings. I know I should cut it back but I don't want to! I love its beautiful red-edged leaves, the beautiful thorny stems, and of course the roses! The leaves which turn yellow and fall off are pretty too. Rain drops are gorgeous on any part of it, and the same goes with dew, frost and snow.

The only problem with taking pictures of droplets on these leaves is that I have a hard time stopping! With so many wonderful possibilities, I could easily capture hundreds of images! However, I could only stay for about 5 minutes because lightly or not, it was definitely raining. After looking through my selection, I have three choices for today. What...NO mushrooms?!!! LOL, I have PLENTY of those pictures to share, but figured it would be nice to spare you for a day! :D

John Richard Vernon was a writer, most well-known for his 1826 book, "The Beauty of Rain”. Vernon earned his MA de­gree at Hert­ford Coll­ege, Ox­ford, and be­came Rec­tor of St. Au­dries, Bridg­wa­ter, Eng­land, in 1872. As of 1881, he was Rec­tor of West Quant­ox­head, Som­er­set.

Raindrops on coloured leaves makes for some lovely shots and you've certainly captured three here Janet! Lovely work. It;s raining here and you've made me feel guilty that I'm not out with the camera. Maybe later.
