Flowers in the rain by Helen in Wales
Flowers in the rain, a photo by Helen in Wales on Flickr.

...to look at the flowers.

There are some lovely little back streets in the town where I live and even though the gardens are tiny, someone has put on a splendidly colourful display. It was raining and I was hurrying home after buying and posting a birthday card for our little grandson, but I couldn't help stopping for a moment to admire these flowers.

It almost looks as though I've done something in PhotoShop to make all but the flowers monochrome, but that's exactly as it was.

The flowers are pretty, but my eye is drawn to those fascinating buildings!

Coming from London, which is all clay and some crumbly chalk, I'm always fascinated by the parts of the country where they make houses out of rocks.

It must look very bleak when those flowers aren't blooming...

That's a pretty street scene.
