June Rains Remembered ...

Birdsfoot Trefoil (Lotus crassifolius)

Sissie and I took a long walk shortly after the rains stopped last week ...
The beauty of "Nature's Jewels" surrounded us, turning even common weeds into gem-encrusted works of art!

(click on pictures to enlarge!)

Beads of water on the Indian Plum (Oemleria cerasiformis) turned the world into a magical place!

Raindrops on the grass seeds reflected the surrounding fields and forests ...

And revealed globes of mystery.

To see reflections from around the world, join us over at James' "Weekend Reflections!"

I am also submitting this post to "Weekend Flowers (On Friday)!" - over at "Goodies for a Pleasant Life"!
