It rained today

Light patter all afternoon on my bedroom wall. The kids playing in the backyard with umbrellas. Everyone wore a coat.

Fall in the northwest is filled with longing for warm soups and fresh baked breads. These rainy day moments are what a lot of us live for. We wait for the heat of summer to disapate and the cool breezes and light rains to move in.
When I went to the garden to pick tomatos for dinner I saw unimagined beauty just waiting to be captured. It is the only time since I have had this camera that I have wished for a better one. The dropplets were too intense to catch on film, the beauty to small and delicate. I tried, but I truly fail to do it justice.

Ok, can I just say that those pictures are just flipping gorgeous!!! Girl, I love your garden. I wish I could come visit you!!

What kind of camera do you have?

Laurie said...

Ok, I just read on amity's what kind of camera you have. I'm in the market for a better camera, whether dh likes it or not, lol! I just feel so limited with mine. Its a good camera but the lens is small and I just have a hard time getting the kind of pictures I want! Of course it would help if I had a beautiful garden full of flowers to take pictures of!
