Disappearing Rain




It was wonderful to be able to go for a walk late yesterday in the light misty rain, with an umbrella just in case.....
I love the colour of this bottlebrush flower I passed.




The river was very still, rising slightly from the previous evening's downpour.




Another treasure from a nearby garden, enjoying the fresh rain.




Today we saw these lovely ducks enjoying our neighbour's temporary "pond".




A pendant raindrop after this morning's shower of rain.




The weather is now sunny and breezy with no significant rain forecast for the next week. All raindrops and our neighbour's "pond" are vanishing quickly, butterflies are reappearing and the river is falling again. A happy day indeed.

To wspaniale, że poziom rzeki opada.Niech lepiej nie pada jakiś czas deszcz. Niech woda pozostanie tylko w tych pięknych, wiszących kroplach. Cudowne kwiaty. Pozdrawiam. ***It's great that the river level falls opada.Niech better not rain for some time. Let the water remains only in these beautiful, hanging drops. An abundance of flowers. Yours.

LadyFi said...

Oh my, that river is high! So glad to hear that it is now dropping again. What a relief!

Lovely dewy flower shots!

Liz said...

Gorgeous images again, Karen.
I have been thinking of those in NSW & Western QLD affected by the rain again. It's one thing to be cooped up in the house with all the rain but to be in danger again and evacuated only a year later must be so horrible.
Your last images of the water droplets are wonderful.

I'm so glad the rain has gone away -- at least for a while! Your colorful flowers are exquisite and your captures are superb as always! I love the droplets of water and your macro shots. And, of course, the ducks are always a favorite!! Visiting your post is always a delightful way to begin my day, Karen.
