…it rained again.  Not that I’m complaining, mind you.  We need all the rain we can get!  And soon it will be in the 100’s and so dry that even the rocks will be thirsty.  But, it does make it rather challenging to get spring flower photos.  So.  I put on my rain jacket with the big hood and out I went!

Just to prove that it was raining, check out the driveway, ha!

It really does make things lovely though, doesn’t it?

The colors were all saturated

The rain lilies made a rare appearance — they only bloom when we have rain.  And sometimes not even then.

The lyre leaf sage was singing in the rain (sorry, couldn’t resist).

And the jewel of them all?  Bluebonnet leaves.
