Macro Flowers Saturday

As the temperatures hovered around 99 degrees all this week, I ran the sprinklers in the early morning to try and save the garden.

One added benefit -- I love the way the sprinklers left drops of water on this Rose of Sharon bloom.




This is my entry into Macro Flowers Saturday, hosted by maiaT.

The water droplets do add something to the photo! They always do!! I love the blue sky in the background, too!

Thanks guys. Ohh, I just noticed on my weather widget - the temperature only hit 95 degrees today! Better get a light jacket!

Thanks Sue :-) Hi Pam - nice to meet a fellow Englishwoman. Thanks for following me. I'll check your blog in the morning, getting a bit late now :-)

What a lovely capture with the blue sky in the background and the raindrops on the bud.
We both had the same thoughts when we posted our Macro Flowers Saturday post.
