A Rainy Day in the Garden

We've been having unusually warm weather for over a week - and today it cooled down and the rain came back.  Almost like a monsoon for a little while - but then it cleared off and we had some sunshine.  My flowers on the deck got a good soaking and they looked so pretty in their lovely "rain coats".
Foxglove leaves - these will bloom next summer. You can see our house reflected in the big drops on the left and the right. 
Honeysuckle leaves 
White Petunia 
Sweet Pea
Bleeding heart leaf - the plant is getting big - and no blossoms yet 
Larkspur greenery

Tomato leaves 
A refreshing summer rain and now it smells so good!!

What is your favorite scent of the summer?

Great raindrop photography!

Your post was like a visit to a fairy garden. I can picture them huddled beneath the leaves for protection from giant raindrops!
My favorite scent of summer is freshly mowed lawn, particularly after a refreshing rain.

How beautiful your photos are...I love the raindrops...

Those photos are great, JoAnn! I wish my macro shots were that wonderful. Those raindrops are making me thirsty!
Have a great upcoming week.

Beautiful shots! Everything looks so fresh! My favorite is the sweet pea...and I'm surprised to see you have a forget me not coming up in summer. They usually come and go in spring, don't they? We've had rain threatened for several days but none has come yet.

I was thinking as I viewed your pictures, that I could smell the air around that shower.

Raindrops on anything are so pretty. It would be hard to choose a favourite summer scent - freshly mown grass, tomato leaves, roses, sunwarmed forest, and so on. We had cloudy skies this weekend but not a drop of rain which is too bad because we could certainly use some.
