Raindrops & Sunshowers

April 17th, 2011 § 2 comments

Stepping Out Through the Raindrops…

Early spring is a busy season for gardeners, and it’s easy to get caught up in the many chores at hand. This morning, Mother Nature sent an unexpected gift —a rainbow wrapped up in a sunshower— reminding me to slow down a bit and enjoy the season as it unfolds…

To Find an Early Morning Sunshower Delivered Unexpected Gifts…

Fothergilla gardenii’s Silvery Buds Glowing in Morning Mist…

And the Delightful Contrast of Rippling Water Moving Through the Stark Reflection of Still Barren Trees…

And the Much Anticipated Pleasure of Viburnum Bodantense ‘Dawn’s Intoxicating Fragrance…

Slows Me Down to Enjoy a Moment Between Passing Showers…

To Reflect and Observe Seasonal Changes in the Garden, Forest and Ephemeral Vernal Pools

    Ah lovely… thank you for sharing, especially the vernal pools – my favourite part of Spring – so much hectic life, exploding in a brief span before they’re dried up and gone again ’til next year… particularly on a day like today, ’cause OMG :( it’s SNOWING like crazy here! (This really would’ve been more appropriate on April 1st.) xo D

    Your camera always has a way with water drops and rain photos. I love them.

    By the way, you are solely responsible for my latest plant purchase… a Viburnum bodantense ‘Dawn’ which I had the hardest time sourcing, and had to track down with difficulty over two years until one was located. I am planting it this spring, with much anticipation. Your blog posts made me do it!
