A Photo a Week Challenge – Rain Drops

All of my photos this spring have rain drops in them I think. Even the 17 Year Cicada I posted Saturday needs to dry out. So here are a few more photos with rain drops to join Nancy Merrill’s A Photo a Week Challenge.

Dogwood Days Full Bloom

A Dogwood tree will never grow on your lot I was told when we built our new  home a couple of years ago. So, being a little bit contrarian, I rescued a Cherokee Red Dogwood from Lowes Garden Center for $7 after gardening season. You do not plant Dogwoods in the fall and expect them to survive the winter, especially in a high wind zone. But I did. It was pretty scruffy looking last year but this year the nurturing is blooming dividends.

From earlier this spring.
