Raindrops on Roses: Weekly Photo Challenge

Raindrops on Roses invoke delight and inspire

I looked out at the ethereal water droplets bathing the garden and I couldn’t help myself.  I had to go out and get soaked taking these pictures. This is my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge since the theme is Spare and the sky had all this spare water in it (so it rained a lot):

    1. Thanks, although I’m not much of a gardener – the roses came with the house and I have no idea what to do with them! My own gardening adventures are generally less exciting – I’ve planted carrots and zucchinis 3 years in a row; they always die (if they sprout at all). The only thing I’m any good with are my potatoes!

      1. LOL well you captured the beauty of the roses like an expert gardener! Roses are tricky particularly depending on the climate you live in, but the one trick that applies to roses everywhere is onl let the rain water the flower & leaves. Only water a rose bush at the base. 😉 What you may lack in a green thumb you more than make up for with your eye for photography. I look forward to seeing more of your photos. G-uno

  4. I used to buy vines of artifial “rain drop” roses at Dollar Tree and had them strung from my ceiling like a jungle. Your photos are much more lovely. 😦

    1. One of the red rosebuds actually reminded me of a fake one I remember having as a child!
