Rainy Monday

Rainy Days and Mondays is the title of the 1971 song by The Carpenters. But, unlike in the song lyrics, today was not a day for being down or frowningInstead, it was perfect for getting out between rain storms and taking photos in the Frog & PenguINN yard.

Water drops on plants in the front yard were good to practice macro shots.

Adding special effects to patio flowers in Picasa was fun afterwards.


There are still a few colorful blooms throughout the yard which made for colorful subjects. The overcast skies provided a soft backdrop as well. 



That's not all, rainy days are good GREAT for napping and reading, both of which Grenville and myself did today. This week's weather forecast is for a few more similar days here.

Splendid macro!

We've had more than our share of rain this summer... we can do without for a few days.

We at Josephina Ballerina just love a good macro! The grey upon grey clouds were beautiful today, and the salt tang of the ocean was carried on an easterly breeze quite far inland. I read, too, as Josephine played outside, having perfected the art of reading with one eye on the book and the other eye on her. A handy skill to have around here!

Rainy Days And Mondays is indeed a beautiful song. I prefer I Love A Rainy Night. Look how clear and clean the air is. All of you pictures are especially crisp because of it. And they are all lovely.
