The Rain Has Arrived


The rain has arrived at our part of the West Coast. Last weekend was very wet, we had a couple of dry days during the week and now the next storm is here, providing gray days and lots of water pouring down onto us. It's going to be a pretty wet trick-or-treatin'.

But at this time I love the rain (this relationship turns around a little bit later in the rainy season though). The air is fresh after the rain and there are so many beautiful things to discover.

Like these flowers in my garden.



Or bubbles...


 ... and puddles


 Drops ready to fall...



 ... and little girls who love to play in the rain, racing their rubber duckies.
Even if they're already 12 years old.

Was für wunderschöne Fotos, da gefällt sogar mir der Regen, auch wenn ich ein absoluter Sonnentyp bin. Ich wünsche dir ein schönes Trick and Treat Wochenende.

Wonderful Carola! So creative! I love how you captured the rain. My favorite is of your daughter's boots with her in the reflection - I have to try that. Thanks for linking in to Exploring with a Camera!

How pretty these photos are...I never have thought of taking pictures in the rain. What a good idea. My favorite, the leaves near the curb.(-:

You captured those rain drops so well. Seems all of CA is getting its first rain of the season.
