rain drops do add that extra something don't they. we had a misty morning but no real rain yesterday but at 7 this morning it looks as if we are in for a lovely sunny day.

All lovely, i too like pics of flowers in the rain, I think our weather is opposite, lovely day yesterday and rain forecast today but looking sunny at the moment :-)

Nice pictures

Another lover of raindrops on flowers photos here, I think they add "something" to them

Such lovely photos.
We have had such a lot of rain down here just lately and it has spoilt many plants in the garden so I am wishing for a dry spell of weather very soon!

Beautiful pictures Shirley. We had a little rain first thing then the sun came outand it was hot! Rain again in the evening...a perfect day weatherwise.

We had torrential rain here one day this week and the lawn was covered in roses petals! It took me all day to dead head and tidy them all up!
I like your photos with the rain drops though!

Interesting to hear how different parts of the country are having mixed weather.

Phyl, was it Cristina who used to say 'Gawjuss'?!!!

Gorgeous snaps, Shirley! Your flowers are looking so fresh.
We’ve had a warmish weekend here, but, rain is forecast here later tonight.

The perfect time to rain - overnight! I spent an hour cutting the Aquilegia and Geranium back, then watched Gardeners World from Friday evening and saw Monty Don advising to do just that! Just started to drizzle with rain now (5.30pm) . . .

Lovely photo's Shirley, and we have had a nice day here too,and did exactly the same as you,last night,as the Geraniums and Aquilegia looked so leggy and scruffy. Started to rain just at the start of the Football,and yes,I am watching it with Russell :o) The only time I ever watch it,so 55 years ago is a long time ! lol..

Sandra, right now (3.15pm) I can hear thunder, the sky is dark as night almost and I am wondering if we shall ever get some decent Summer weather!

Earlier today I cut back another Aquilegia, had to lift up some of the Catmint and was disgusted to find four fat slugs lurking . . . ugh! They are now in the brown garden waste bin, off to a new home for them in the morning . . . . . :o)

I only watched the second half, thought Italy were the far better team, despite their 'dark art' of fouling players. Fed up already hearing about the 'social media' negative comments on certain players . . . :o(

I can't see your photos for some reason Shirley. Just 6 little blue question marks!

Ooh-er, that's strange! They are all showing for me .....

Well done, Shirley, for taking those lovely pictures of raindrops! 👏 👏 👏

On Flickr I moderate a group called "Flowers with Raindrops" & if they were submitted to the group I'd approve them the moment I saw them in the queue!

Last week I managed to get a few pictures of some of my flowers with raindrops & have uploaded some of them to the group!

Well, thank you so much David, I'm flattered, to say the least!

14 Jul, 2021

 

Well they are lovely! 😃

Today I can see all your photos so don't know what happened before, one of those odd computer glitches I suppose. Lovely pics anyway, glad I was able to view them in the end.

Gremlins out in force again Josie . . . :o)
