My last post illustrated some of the rainy weather we'd been experiencing. It's been lovely and sunny since, though it's raining lightly as I type.
The photos below were taken shortly after bringing home a hanging basket of fuchsia. It rained (and hailed) that very day but when the raindrops ended and the sun came out, my camera was drawn to the droplet-laden blossoms. There's also a short video which I had meant to include with the previous post but forgot about. It shows some of the precipitation which greeted our brand new fuchsia. It wouldn't surprise me at all if next year, that basket yields sunflowers and peanut plants. The squirrels enjoy burying our offerings in it.
I hope you enjoy the blossoms.
Raindrops are my only reminder that clouds have a heartbeat. That I have one, too.

For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.

Remember when we made love in the rain? You asked me to bring protection, and I brought a windshield wiper.

I want your sun to reach my raindrops, so your heat can raise my soul upward like a cloud.
The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet day.
~ Dr. Seuss
Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.

The Sun after the rain is much beautiful than the Sun before the rain!

Watch for the chair tipping over on the dock. I was looking right at it through the viewfinder and still missed it.
