Petals Kissed by Rain

Overnight Rain

Star Magnolia

I love the look of raindrops on flower petals. It’s a popular photo subject. I plan to write a longer blog essay later, but I couldn’t resist posting these now. There’s really not much else to say about such delicate beauty. Look and enjoy. Check back later.

Meanwhile, I have cooking to do and a chapter of my novel to work on. I probably have some Sunday loafing to do as well.

Okay. I love odd numbers. I love this next photo, even though there are no raindrops on these petals. The tulip grows in a container on my balcony. It ‘s the sister of the tulip in my other post, “Portrait of a Tulip.” The two magnolias grow on the campus of my alma mater, the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. I never knew yellow magnolias existed until I saw this one. The lovely campus is a fine place to walk no matter what the season. One of my favorite memories of college is walking past the Music Building on a fine day, when the windows were open, flowers bloomed all around, and a student was rehearse on the piano or flute. M

You can expect to see more photos from the Puget Sound campus, too.
