Now how’s this for dedication? I’ve just been scuttling around my garden in the pouring rain to take these pictures since it’s Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day and though the garden is very weedy at the moment it is full of flowers, so I didn’t want to miss it.

As so often happens when you do things differently, it was a revelation. I’ve realised I never go out in the garden in the rain: just look what I’ve been missing.

Did everyone else know this already and wasn’t telling me? From now on I hope I shall always pop out with an umbrella to enjoy my garden with dewdrops of rain on every petal.

Thank you to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day!
