Re: After the rain

Thanks guys the plants were only 10 feet from our back door so I didn't have to go far out in the rain, hence stayed pretty dry. I'll have to post the name when my other half gets back tomorrow as I'm useless remembering the names.

Re: After the rain

I'm with you on that Chevvy. I just spotted the patch of garden had a shaft of sunlight on it amongst all the rain and grabbed the camera.

Re: After the rain

Chevvy puts it better than I can, Phill. All I can say is that it is often the case that the best pictures are right in our own backyard

I think the first 2 are Alchemilla mollis and the other 2 are Hypericum androsaemum (common name Tutsan).

Nice shots, particularly of the Hypericum in No 4

Re: After the rain

You picked a great time to photograph these, the rain really enhances them.
