We got a nice soaking here in the Bay Area, I was just out enjoying how unusually fragrant my roses are in this humid weather and I had to snap a few pics.

RE: After the rain

so pretty! after deep watering this week before leaving town it dawned on me how much prettier roses look when they've had enough to drink. (duh).
it's really a simple thing but for some reason today was the first time i noticed the fragrance, plumpness of the blooms and lots of nice new growth.
thanks for sharing.

All lovely, peachy!

RE: After the rain

Thanks everyone! I have been too busy to get out to take many pics this year, so every one I get that's good is more special to me. After our little rainstorm we've got a heatwave coming, forecast calls for 100 degree temps 4 days in a row. Hopefully the nice soaking will pull the roses though without too much stress...
