On the grayest, soggiest day, what little light seeps through the heavy sky catches in jeweled raindrops. Wet cabochons shimmer for a moment, before sliding and colliding into dripping puddles of reflected light.
Oxalis regnellii ‘triangularis’
Who would expect such exquisite beauty to come with the rain? Light finds its way into the gloom, and multiplies itself in countless reflections.
Heuchera ‘Melting Fire’
This beautiful light surrounds us. We only need to notice it, for it to penetrate our own hearts and minds, and then reflect again into the multiverse.

There is something very captivating about rain drops on leaves! Lovely : )
They fascinated me enough that I went and grabbed the camera 😉 Wasn’t expecting any good garden photos yesterday, but was thrilled with these 😉
