After The Rain

“And now the cordial clouds have shut all in,
And gently swells the wind to say all’s well;
The scattered drops are falling fast and thin,
Some in the pool, some in the flower-bell.”
– Henry David Thoreau

  1. Good Thought for the day Nancy… the power of compassion is so often under appreciated. Today’s Thoreau and yesterday’s Longfellow are very much appreciated.

  2. Oooh! Love the droplet in that second photo. It looks like you caught the snapshot just before it fell.

  3. Nancy, Thoreau’s words bring such vivid images to mind. And rain drops on the flowers are perfect to enhance them.

  4. I love after the rain pictures .. water droplets .. individual and grouped .. I find them fascinating for some reason .. they look amazing and impossible at times don’t they ?

  5. Cordial clouds are performing their magic here today too. The greens are just a bit greener this morning after the rain. Everything looks fresher and happier.

  6. In addition to the lovely photographs and quote from my favorite poet, your title is a Sting song. Therefore, I pronounce this post…Perfect.

  7. *gardenpath — we would love to have had a few of your thunderstorms here yesterday! The humidity was through the roof, but the air feels better today. :) Thanks for the thought!

    Thank you everyone for taking a moment to leave a comment — your words are always so encouraging!

  8. There is something about the rain on a blossom that creates such an appealing photo. Your last photo of the petal is truly artistic.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
