We were blessed with a little lagniappe yesterday in the form of a refreshing rainstorm, complete with thunder and lightning. I was so happy to see the rain that I didn't mind the stormy part, and ventured out on the porch to try to capture some pictures of the rain. I was disappointed in most of the pictures, but saved this one because you can see the drops hitting the water in our pond, which I think is kind of neat.
We needed the rain, and after the storm moved through, everything looked so pretty and fresh and COOL. Well, it wasn't COOL, but it was definitely a few degrees cooler than it had been before the rain ... and that was nice.
Here are a few pictures I captured (after the rain went away) of our Crape Myrtles and a Begonia in a hanging basket near our porch ...
They looked so pretty after their rain bath, as if their petals were sprinkled with diamonds.
I love the fringe of raindrops clinging to the Crape Myrtle blossoms ...
