Weathered Wonders

Monday was a rainy, summer day!

I headed out to meet 
a woman selling 
furniture from her home.

When I arrived,
I was greeted by the most 
adorable flower garden.

A heavy rain had just
cleared and the sun was 
peaking out
between the clouds!

Her home was surrounded 
by green grass and flowers
and a multitude of
wet, weathered wonders.

 Everywhere I looked, I found a surprise!

 Beautiful, bright colored flowers,
long and tall,
or hanging and trailing from baskets,
all glistening with rain drops.

 All sorts of places to sit
and enjoy the beautiful surroundings!

Dainty blooms and Turtles ~

 whimsy and a profusion of color ~

 made me a believer!

 Everywhere I looked,
there was something to see!

I got permission first 
before I snooped around her yard!

I didn't want to wear out my welcome,
 but it was like a secret garden!

 I even found surprises up in the trees!

 So in the damp yard, as the wind chimes clanged
and the rain dripped from the trees ~

I felt a sense of peaceful joy!
