after the rain





I love this time of year and its ever changing weather. Bright sunshine this morning gave way to torrential downpours this afternoon. After the rain, freshness filled the air. A clean, damp scent. A scent I love. Maybe I could bottle it. 

The skies were beautiful, full of clouds. Pretty wispy clouds emptied of their cargo. And in the hedgerows, clouds of cow parsley dampened by the rain.

  1. Beautiful photos, this is my favourite time of year. I do so love the clouds and the rain, it always feels so cleansing, as if all of the dust is being washed away. I hope you have a good week Bee. CJ xx

  9. Hey Bee,
    I love this time of year too. But we had rain all weekend here in St Ives, which made for disastrous adventuring!
