My World Tuesday - Wet and blooming

It has rained for several days, delaying our plans to get the rest of our new plants in pots and the ground. (And the grass is growing high.) But the azaleas and rhododendron are now blooming. And Marianne's new froggy friend loves the rain!

Lovely spring photos. Spring is hanging on a little longer in California with some unusual May storms otherwise I would be envious.

It's a joy to see the flowers blooming. It's raining here in my part of California today.

You could be in my world most of the time. Love the puddle shot. Reflections in puddles are a big fav of mine to do, you got to work a little harder but the results are worth it.

Yes, you are brave to take photos in all this rain that we are having now in the east. Greaaaaaaaaaaat pics.
Positive: it is getting rid of the pollen from the oak trees.
Negative: I'm a little behing in my gardening endeavors.
