The small lake near our home has been flooded by recent rains.  Trees are now standing in the water.

Privet bushes grow wild everywhere and make fantastic hedges (trimmed or untrimmed).  In Spring they are covered with beautiful white flowers.

Rain drops cover the plants and often make them shine like diamonds.

  1. Oh Peggy.. I have never seen a Painted Bunting before. And how beautiful.. I can see how it got its name.. So pretty..
    All of these photo’s were stunning.. Love the rain drops on the petals too
    The trees will recover from the flooding..
    But I do often think of the small creatures who could not get out of flood waters way..
    Nature is a remarkable teacher.. So beautiful, and yet not to be messed with when she means business..
    She is asking us to sit up and take note..
    Amazing post Peggy.. much love for a relaxing weekend..
    Love and Hugs
    Sue ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. The Creation is so lovely! I like to sit quietly sometimes and be a part of the creation. The sky and trees above me, the earth below, the wind on my face – I feel myself blending in, one with the earth.
