Rain or Shine. Or Both.

Don't you love just love the different types of weather?

Yesterday morning I pottered around in the garden, pruning our random tomato plant
and uprooting the zucchini two plants that refused to grow before sitting on 
the porch swing chatting with my best friend who lives overseas.

This morning, after a night of pouring rain,
it had slowed to a steady drizzle so I stood on the back patio
admiring the rain drops that lined the foliage of the jasmine vines.

I kept watching them drop and decided I needed to grab my camera and take some photos!

The light was amazing!

Who would have thought?  A rainy day?  Good lighting for photos?! 

I guess that's how we learn, eh?  By doing.

As I was peering through the lens, my eye found a little hidden wonder ...

A gorgeous dragon fly seeking shelter from the wet drops.

And the beautiful white flowers that had opened opened earlier in the week
were tightly shut, protecting their delicate centers from the rain.

Such little beauties.

This little one didn't shut quick enough and was pulled over by the weight of the rain.
I still thought it was beautiful though ...

I do love the rain. 
And the shine.

Do you?
