Love this rain!
Rain is wonderful and oh, so welcome!
The butterfly bush is growing taller. See how the leaves are straight and seem to open up to the rain. You can see the rain falling at a slight angle - that's what the thin slightly slanted vertical lines are.
It's been raining nearly constantly for 3 days now. And it's mostly a gentle rain that seeps into the ground. Our walkways around the garden are nice and wet.
Sometimes the rain almost creates waves in the birdbath. Those vertical light lines are raindrops captured in slow motion.
