Roses through the rain

Roses through the rain_StaatsThe rains have continued this past week.  Unlike most years, everything remains green and lush.  We haven’t had the excessive heat of a typical summer, and the rainfall has been more than adequate to keep things watered.  As the rain pelted the window yesterday afternoon, it created a wonderful effect with the roses in the background.  Each droplet reflected the roses – the bright colors and shapes seemed to dance in the water.  How wondrous and mesmerizing to see the many “small roses” that decorated the window pane in those droplets.
