After the Rain

There is a special time just after rain has stopped. It is a moment of silence when Blackbirds and Robins are preparing to burst into excited song after a period when song is stilled by rain. Light has a special quality – it catches any droplet of moisture hanging from foliage or flower. Recently I managed to capture just such a moment with camera in hand and snapped away joyfully. I even shared the unique time with our garden when bird song descended over it engulfing its atmosphere.

You can share this time by following the gallery. click on the first pic, navigate with the arrows and simply enjoy.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
