September flowers

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!

rain droplets and morning dew always make the garden appear fresh to me..

Glad to see you're still slipping in the veg!

No rain here, but the early morning sun has gone and it's dull, dull, dull now :(

Beautiful array of blooms! Carol

Rainy days are one of my favourite times to view the garden, especially with camera in hand. Lovely collection of beauties you have there.
