Still Raining After All These Years



Yup, it's still raining here.  And I'm thinking of that Paul Simon song, Still Crazy After All These Years."  If we get many more rainy days, I'll be going crazy.  But in the meantime, the raindrops do look pretty on this honeysuckle.  But it will be even better when the blossoms open and that wonderful scent fills the air...      :)

Can't spell this morning. What I meant to say was this:

The raindrops do look pretty on the honeysuckle - and very refreshing. It's been warm, rainy and humid here so refreshing is good.

It's still raining here also. Last week while I was sick it was warm and sunny. Now that I'm feeling better it won't stop raining...

Hilarious, Mary! And honeysuckle is my absolute favorite scent. Quite beautiful how you have it depicted here.

I love honeysuckle - especially in the dead of summer when it's full of lazy droning bees. It reminds me of my childhood.

so fresh looking with the rain droplets and oh honeysuckle, so heavenly and brings back fond childhood memories.

Honeysuckle has such a big scent for such a little blossom. I love it.

Rain...don't talk to me about rain...I live on the Wet Coast over on the other side of the country. We have a saying "We don't tan, we rust." I feel for you!

Rain, rain, go away. Come again some other day, er, month. I'm so over it.

Can't deny the beauty of the drops on the leaves, but yes, too much of a good thing...

Simple and very beautiful. A couple of weeks ago the orange blossoms were in full bloom, now that's a sweet smell.

LOL, I know! I have to post shots from Palm Springs because I haven't been able to get out! I love this photo!

I love the scent of honeysuckle. A lovely image of yours waiting patiently to bloom. We've had rain just about every day this week since the weekend. I'm so ready for steady sunshine! I'm having to dig in my archives for images to post.

another stunning photo. I love the scent of so many of these flowering shrubs and vines -- I'm still waiting for the lilacs to leaf out and then bloom! Oh joy.
