June Showers

purple and white iris blooms with water droplets on them from the rain

We’ve had a cold and rainy spring this year. While that means the weeds are getting watered as well as the seeds, I much prefer rainy springs to hot and dry ones. I haven’t gotten my camera out as much this spring as in past years; I’m having troubles with the focus, and need to upgrade to a new camera body (mine is 15 years old!) but until then, I’ll just keep muddling along with this one and hoping for the best. If the focus is a bit soft, I’ll just pretend it’s a vintage filter effect.

Anyway, the other day, when there was a pause in the rain showers, I ran out and took a few photos of my mom’s front garden which is currently a beautiful blend of colour, with even more to come in the next weeks.

These are dandelion seed heads that have been flattened from the rain- don’t they look beautiful?
