photoblog image Rainy Monday

Rainy Monday

Our drought, with rain last on 02 June, ended with a passing 1mm shower on 29 June. Then we got about 5mm on 02 July.  Since then, another shower followed by a good rain last week, has softened our island and let everyone, especially farmers, breath a sigh of relief.

 

Today's raindrops are from the first 1mm shower. It is amazing the drops are clear and not sand or dust coloured.

Those rain droplets are lovely little lenses
Care MacADNski: They brought some welcome relief.
Beautiful close up shots, Care! I'm so glad you've finally got rain - we have too - two days running now! I think our previous precipitation was in March.
Care MacADNski: For the next few days they promise sunny days and rain overnight. Perfection!

Well I’m glad you had a shower of rain.
Care MacADNski: We are hoping for more but have had some welcome relief.
That's a super image, Care! Very striking smile
Care MacADNski: So glad you liked it!
These are very fine images Care, especially the lower one. We've had more rain than we want for this time of the year over the last few weeks, and not much sun!!!!
Care MacADNski: We would like more and for the next few days they promise sunny days and rain overnight. Perfection!

Some great pearly plant shots. Maybe 1 mm was enough to first wash the plants before leaving the crystal bubbles.
Care MacADNski: I am just glad to have the rain and the shots. More rain is welcome.
