They are wet with the showers and embrace the rock for want of shelter...Job 24:8

This afternoon we picked the wrong time to go for part of our walk...We got almost to the end of our driveway when it poured down rain..It was like a cloud burst...We ended up running the rest of the way to our mail box and the only shelter we could find on the way back to the house to get out of the pelting hail like rain was to stand under an apple tree. We finished the rest of our walk this evening....We are still here no worse for wear:) Thankfully I left my camera at home on our afternoon walk and didn't use it until I shot a picture of the hollyhock after it stopped raining..We don't have too many hollyhocks left anymore but liked how this one looked with the raindrops clinging to the backside of it.

Wet from the showers
We raced thru' our walk
Happy were the flowers
Who embraced the rain...
Especially the hollyhock,
One of few left to remain.
Poetry by me, AJP

    Very beautiful. I love hollyhocks, Andrea. They remind me of my childhood when we had them everywhere around the property. Your walk turned into quite an adventure, didn't it? :)) I love to walk in the rain, but not when it's hailing!! Wonderful shot!!!

    Beautifully captured! I often think the back side of a flower is just as pretty as the front!

    A agree with Susan. Different views of flowers can be quite interesting and just as pretty.
