Rain glorious rain...!



Thunder crashes.
Lightening flashes.
Rain makes puddles,
I make splashes.
- Anon.
Anon described exactly how it was yesterday morning when I awoke.. it was the first rain in four months causing havoc on summer dry roads and dusty electricity lines, but you know what, it was fabulous! The smell of first rain is as heady as the best French perfume and although it was short and sweet there could be more to come over the weekend.. I live in hope! Have a wonderful weekend, take care and stay safe... click for more Weekend Reflections. p.s. I know these are pretty tame reflections but they are wonderful to moi :)

  4. We recently had our first rain in months. I TOTALLY agree with you about the smells. Like you, we need a lot more. That was nice little spot in your photo.

  5. Fantastic rare reflection :). Enjoy!!!!

    I am on a little break. Perth is in the news here daily (ref plane search). Hard to believe that there is so much ocean off your shores.

  13. I know the smell, we are to get more rain and maybe snow here but will probably be wanting rain in a few months.

  14. Some people in colder and wetter countries will not understand the pleasure we take from rain after a long spell of dryness. Steady rain rather than flooding rain though, please.

  16. Ah, the smell of newly fallen rain. Very refreshing, It won't be long until we get daily thiundershowers and storms here.

  17. Beautiful reflections to me Grace, and you are so fortunate to have such a downpour - we didn't have the storm - yet! Isn't it amazing how refreshed in body and mind we feel after the first good rains! Joy x

  18. It's amazing how much we appreciate something when we suffered from the lack of it! Beautiful shot. And someone told me you weren't all wet! Sheesh!

  19. It is a very pretty image and there is enough reflection to satisfy me, Grace. Go get wet!

  20. I can't imaging four months without rain. Las Vegas and Phoenix don't go four months without rain. If I were in your city I'd want to run around in it til I dropped.

  24. What a lovely, joyful and refreshing feeling this capture conveys! I hope you got to glory in all that splish splashy goodness:)

  25. When I first moved to the mountains I loved the fact that instead of rain, we had snow...it was so quiet and delicate (at least most of the time!) and you could go out in it without an umbrella or getting particularly wet. But I found myself mesmerized by the rain the last time we were visiting the southland and it rained...go figure...

  26. I love your reflection. Its so beautiful.

    There has to be really dry, if it has not rained in 4 months. I can not imagine the kind here in Finland. I also think the rain smells (especially the summer rain).

  27. Glorious image. I love the earthy smell of the first rains too !

  28. Glad you're having such a pretty wet moment!

  29. What a nice place. I like the big plants too.
    (Looks like Stavanger, apart from the colorful plant OUTSIDE.
    We had SNOW and rain earlier today:)
