In any case, I like when it rains. Rain is soothing to listen to, and nice to watch. And even to get out into and photograph! I have many of these kinds of photos, raindrops on pineneedles. They never cease to fascinate me. And when the weather clears, I can take photos of reflections which is another thing I like to experiement with.
When I see raindrops I often wonder where they've been before--were they dinosaur pee? Were they part of Noah's flood? Were they tears shed due to a broken heart? Perspiration on a working man's brow? If only raindrops could talk!

I liked the shadow from this leaf, and the contrast of the brown against white.
In the second photo of the dried grass, it reminds me of a ribbon, and, again, I dig the shadows.

There's something about snow that brings out the kid in many of us--when it snows, it covers everything with a soft, white blanket. Playing in the snow with friends and then coming in to hot cocoa and to warm up before going out again is a fond memory that I have. Sometimes school is closed, making the occasion even more exciting. Rules are often suspended and mothers don't mind the snow that gets tracked in. We get to make and eat snow cream, a rare treat. Even weeds are transormed into lovely snow-flowers--everything looks lovlier, magical. Snow is something so simple but is simply wonderful and brings out the kid in so many of us...

I wish that sign wasn't in view...
