I was right about the rain. Today it has been full on. Again the wintry frosty conditions I crave for are alluding me so I’ll have to make do with the drip, drip, and the drop, drop. The holly bush at the end of the garden path seems to be a good subject and became my quarry after the rain had abated. The close-up filters are dusted off and trained on the shiny red berries, glossy with the recent rain. And just to add a little more polish, I shake the spiky holly leaves above to rain on my chosen cluster of leaves. Well sometimes Mother Nature just doesn't send raindrops in the exact spot I'd like them to be, is I have to assist her.
