The Garden…after the rain


We experienced quite a bit of rain last week. I know what you’re all thinking “duh Carol you live in Seattle!” But contrary to popular believe it does not rain constantly here, and we have varying levels of rain. We have ‘mist’, then there are ‘light showers’, then ‘showers’, ‘rain’, and then we have ‘heavy rain’ – this is the kind of rain that soaks you to the bone in 3 seconds flat! Usually wind accompanies this kind of rain so an umbrella is useless, Mother Nature turns those bumbershoots inside out, which is why Seattle folk rarely carry umbrellas!

But after the rain, we are treated to the clean, fresh beauty of nature.


So, when I woke up one morning to find the rain had stopped, I grabbed my camera to explore my garden and discover what delights Mother Nature left behind. Rather than write a bunch of words, I thought I’d just share what I saw.









What has Mother Nature put in your path recently?

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.

    So glad I can visit your garden with you any time like this – will cling to the blog posts as my journey takes me away from you and this area once more. Fortunately, technology keeps us linked like never before and our hearts are linked for life!- Love you – JBV

    I love rain…the sound and look and smell of it. And the “after rain”! Your garden is so lovely, and all those water drops just enhance each plant. Gorgeous!

  7. So beautiful Carol love your little hearts in amongst the Ivy. We have had some well needed rain at last. We have had a very dry spell in my part of the world.

    So lovely, Carol.
    We really need rain here, and I don’t ever remember that happening before. We usually have more than enough rain. Very strange weather, indeed.
