After The Rain

This afternoon the rains came.

There is a special beauty after the rain: a peaceful quiet, a simple raindrop, a certain smell, the glow of the freshened green, the smile of the flowers, the softness of the quenched earth.

Walk my yard with me and ponder this beauty, a true blessing after weeks of dry heat.

BEAUTIFUL POST!!!
I can feel the garden, smell the freshness and don't the flowers always seem to leave perfume lingering in the damp air?
Wonderful!
Almost everything I had in bloom is gone now~~I am impatiently awaiting the next wave...whatever it might be! Yours are just gorgeous! :-)

XXOO~~

We need some of that rain, Audrey! Our green is turning a little brown around here. Your pics are lovely. You already have blueberries? Ours haven't started to turn yet. I think it is going to finally cool off for a few days, so I might even go outside to see my garden. LOL!! xox Pam
