After the Rain


We finally got some rain on Saturday night and that brought the temperatures down enough that I took a 6:00 AM stroll at the Desert Botanical Garden.  Everything seemed to be soaking up that much needed moisture.



It was a pleasant 77 degrees (25C) however, the humidity was up around 70%.  That's okay, all that moisture is good for the complexion.  It dried up quite a bit by Sunday afternoon.  Fingers crossed for another good rain.

I would think humidity would be a huge blessing where you are! The bees certainly look happy. :)

The water drops add so much interest to the images.

I imagine the plants and insects love the brief respite from the heat and sun!

Wow! you managed to capture the bee...rains make all things beautiful :)

Last evening here- torrential downpour, mighty storm. Like your close-ups.

The orange trumpet flowers are so well adapted to almost any climate. They grow here profusely in a land where it's usually constantly wet and 70 percent humidity would almost be a dry day!

-I do not know the name, but we have a lot of those trumpet flowers... I would really like some rain to bring down the temperature!

These shots would almost make it worth getting up and about at 6 am but not quite!! ;-))

The Trumpet blooms are so pretty and the humming birds love them.
I think Wickenburg got more than enough rain for a while.

All three are gorgeous but my favourite is the last one! It's been raining steadily here in Quimper with high humidity too, it feels so sticky outside... But if you say it's good for the complexion... :-)

I noted that my original comment is not here; I often forget to click on "publish your comment" and instead just hit return. I'd better pay more attention, I really love the top photo which looks like the blossoms are trumpeting the raindrops.
