Summer rain

Geum 'Mrs Bradshaw'
Rain drops on Geum ‘Mrs Bradshaw’

What could be lovelier than to hear

The summer rain

Cutting across the heat, as scythes

Cut across the grain?

The Alnwick Rose David Austin
Raindrops on roses….The Alnwick Rose

ArtLife in the Garden C.Hazel (7)


Falling upon the steaming roof

With sweet uproar

Tapping and rapping wildly at the door?

No, do not lift the latch, but through the pane

We’ll stand and watch the circus pageant

Of the rain,

???????????????????????? The Garden Times 055

And see the lightening, like a tiger, striped and dread,

And hear the thunder cross the shaken sky

With elephant tread. – Elizabeth Coatsworth
