After the rain...

Yesterday evening and into the night it rained pretty good here.
This morning I went out to the garden to soak in the beauty which water leaves behind.
Suspended and fragile, magnifying a world of it's own.
 
 'When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.'

How stunning... all of them.
What is the 17th photo of. What kind of flower. It's beautiful!
Rain makes them all so amazingly more lovely... like a poem without words.
