When the spring rains come it's a signal to the plants in the garden to wake up and stretch their new stems. While it's raining outside, I'm playing inside with raindrops.
A familiar sight, rain clouds moving in which leave shrivelled fruit on the crabapple tree dripping with water droplets.
The pond becomes a source of musical pitter patter that crescendoes when the clouds burst open. Water pools at the front arbour and slinks across the sidewalk at times.
Plant leaves hold shimmering splashes of water and none is better at this than Alchemilla mollis (lady's mantle) on the right. Beauty as well as drinks for insects and wildlife.
My daughter created 'purple rain' for me and I took it one step further by adding a dark rain texture over top to soften the effect. I used PicMonkey for the collages and adding my own texture.
When April steps aside for May,
Like diamonds all the rain-drops glisten
Fresh violets open every day
To some new bird each hour we listen.
