Raindrops on Pink Perfection lily, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 5, 2012.

We end through a hot dry spell several weeks ago, but then the weather man said a cold front was coming through bringing rain with it. The front came through, but the rain didn’t. This happened again — and again. (Fairfield Glade has five golf courses. I think the Community Club has arranged for a giant umbrella to be installed so as not to interfere with golf rounds.)
But finally, on Monday night, we got some rain. The picture above shows what we saw when we looked up at our 7-foot tall Pink Perfection lily.
Ronald Reagan rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 5, 2012.
I think the roses also appreciated the rain. The water drops on this rose look like little jewels.
Cantina iris, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 5, 2012.
We still have an iris in bloom, and it, too, seemed to appreciate the rain.
Raindrops on one of our lilies, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 5, 2012.
We had gone out early to check the flowers in our yard, which is something we do just about every morning. But on this day the water drops were as beautiful as the blossoms.
