Mother Nature Weeps

Mother Nature weeps

Rose 2

Here in Cape Town we are in our dry season, which lasts about five months. So any rain is especially welcome at this time of year, even if it is only one millimetre!

My roses are grateful. As am I!

    Beautiful roses. I will be wishing you some much needed moisture. Too bad I cant just email you some. We are expecting rain tonight, sunny tomorrow and 3-8 inches of snow on Sunday. Yuck.

      Thank you very much πŸ™‚
      Don;t worry about our lack of rain – it is usual for this time of year – and we Capetonians have been very very careful with our water usage for over a year now, so there is enough water in the dams to last us till the rainy season next April. πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous roses. I especially love the first one. I’m always intrigued by any photo that captures raindrops. Fascinating.

    Glad Mother Nature at least wept a bit in your area. Here in NYS she’s giving us the cold shoulder….2 (yep, two!) degrees!

    Your close ups are exquisite! As a child my Mother told me the raindrops were Angel’s Tears, I like the image of Mother Nature weeping even better.
