Raindrops in London

On Saturday morning I was delighted to see that it was raining.  We haven’t had a lot of rain in London lately and we need it.   When I went for my walk I enjoyed seeing the drops of water on the flowers, grass, and plants.   I love how little things like raindrops can make nature even more beautiful.

    Those photos are really neat! I especially like the one with the red flower. 🙂

  4. I love to see raindrops on leaves too, it makes them look so healthy and alive.

    “Raindrops keep falling on my head…” reminded me this beautiful song your raindrops, dear TBM. These are wonderful photographs… as you said, how beautiful they are when they had rain… Thank you, with my love, nia

    Nice!! I just saw the same kind of photo’s on another blog….and it’s amazing that you can show me the beauty of rain as I really don’t like the rain at all normally :)!! So thanks for sharing!

  7. Oooh! What a tonic to see Spring in such abundance and with such clarity. I just love these T. B.

  8. Rain was good but it wrecked my golf plans!

    • TBM says:

      I’m sorry to hear that. It shortened our day plans as well. But the moisture is needed. I always marvel how it will be beautiful during the work week and then miserable on the weekend.

    Something about raindrops seem to add more beauty to a flower! Nice shots!

  13. Caroline says:

    I really agree with you, raindrops on plants have something very special.

  14. I thought it rained in London every day! This must be unusual.
    Lovely photos!

    • TBM says:

      I guess the rain every day is a myth. So far, and I know this winter has been weird so it is hard to judge, but it rains more in Boston. We’ll see if that trend continues.

  15. Northern Narratives says:

    I really like your raindrop photos.

  16. carol says:

    What pretty photos! I wish our flowers were blooming.

    These pictures are even more Spring-like! Glad you got out and enjoyed the rain. It has been too dry here this season as well. With pretty much no snowfall and very little rain I wonder what our growing season is going to be like here in our part of the Midwest. Worries me a little. I hope we get a fair bit of Spring rain. But during the weekdays when I’m stuck in the office, not on weekends! 🙂

    • TBM says:

      That is the major downside to mild winters. I hope you will still get to see flowers this spring and I hope the farmers in the midwest won’t suffer from the mild winter. And I hope you get some rain, but only during the weekdays. But if it rains on the weekend, make sure you have some good books to keep you company. I love reading when it rains. I have a feeling you might like that as well.

      • Carl V. says:

        I do enjoy a good book and/or a certain kind of movie when it is raining. Something about rain makes me want to watch Jane Austen adaptations.

        But I also love to read outside during Spring and that is why I want dry weekends.

      • TBM says:

        I watched parts of Jane Eyre the other day when it rained. It was an older adaptation. I’ll have to watch a Jane Austen flick the next time it rains. I also love watching Little Women when it is cold and nasty outside. I love that film, even though I always cry.

        I will miss my deck in Boston this summer. I loved reading out there. But so far, that is a pretty minor complaint about London. Come over here, we can go to Hyde park and read.

      • Carl V. says:

        I’ve got to snag a blu-ray copy of the latest Jane Eyre sometime. I loved that film and it is such a great film to watch on a rainy day. I need to pick up a cheap copy of Bright Star as well. Another movie (sadder than Jane Eyre) that is good for both rainy and sunny days.

      • TBM says:

        I did like the most recent Jane Eyre. I haven’t heard of Bright Star I’ll have to check it out when I stock up on Kleenex.

      • Carl V. says:

        You’ll need it!

  18. Subhan Zein says:

    Great photos! I loved raindrops! Any other raindrops on buildings, chairs, or inanimate things? Perhaps it’s great to capture as well. Just an idea. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, by the way. And thank you for following my blog.. 🙂

      By the time I went on my walk the rain had stopped. Only some of the plants and flowers had drops on it. Everything else was just wet. I’ll keep an eye out next time.

  19. Kristina says:

    Beautiful pictures! Plants look so refreshed! 🙂

  20. Colline says:

    What beautiful flowers.

  21. I totally agree!! Water droplets make a great photo spectacular. 🙂

  22. T.F.Walsh says:

    Sometimes rain can make everything look so much more gorgeous

  23. gageier says:

    Guten Tag.
    Ja Regentropfen sind einfach romantisch auf Bildern ,man kann sich dann vorstellen es regnet,einen schönen Tag wünscht dir Klaus

  24. IsobelandCat says:

    Lovely. I agree about the rain making things prettier at times.
    Rome has more rain than London! Ours tends (or do I mean tended, the weather has changed so much) to be light and of short duration.
    I bought my first umbrella when I lived in the south of France. When it rains there, it buckets down and goes on for days. i thought I should never be dry!

    • TBM says:

      I never owned an umbrella until I moved to Boston. It would rain for days there. At least every thing was green. And you had to have a sturdy umbrella since the winds were horrible. I never would have guessed that Rome has more rain. I didn’t know you lived in the south of France. How very cool!

  25. Susi says:

    Lovely. What is it about raindrops? I took pictures of raindrops on my windshields… it came out so pretty.

    • TBM says:

      I don’t know what makes them so special, but I love seeing them. It is a misty morning this morning so not too many drops. I think I like how they remind me of life…April showers bring May flowers.

  26. My favorite set of photographs, so far.
