Finally after 6 weeks drought

some drops of rain on my patch

Some grasses are jumping for joy


others seem too far gone and need more of a deluge to perk up again.

  1. I can’t remember ever wishing it to rain. It tried to rain several times – a few desultory drops – and I was talking to the sky: ‘come on, you can do it, try a little harder’. We had several days like that before finally we had a day of steady rain. And now it’s drying out again. That’s a beautiful image, Paula. Delicate and isolated by clever use of differential focus.

  3. Well, we’ve had some respite – which I enjoyed immensely. But I gather that this weekend is going to be hot again, and I’ve heard long-range forecasts, which may not be right, but which in any case I don’t want to even think about. I’m longing for autumn chills, and mists!!!

Views through a lens - a personal viewpoint



Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
