Rainy Day Walks

Rainy Day Walks

It's been raining here.  D. and I have been taking walks through the neighborhood in between rain showers, and I've taken some pics.

A drop of amber rain hangs from congealed sap oozing from this flowering plum.

Brilliant red and gold sweet gum leaves skitter across sidewalks and are carried down along gutters to storm drains.

Chinese pistache berries create a thick carpet on our lawn.

A neighbor has put their own abundant crop of pistache berries to imaginative use.

Rain creates a uniform glaze on some foliage.  On others, the different leaf textures cause it to bead up into discrete droplets, little gleaming jewels, tiny universes unto themselves.
