           This was a raindrop just about to drop.

  I have seen sooo many lovely pictures on blogs recently that I decided  to try some for myself. 
We had a really heavy downpour on wednesday and after it had finished I went for a walk in the garden -  it's only a small garden so it didn't take very long. :).  It's amazing what you can see if you look hard enough.
This is the plant we got at the weekend which smells like chocolate - well not only does it smell like chocolate but I thought it looked as if it was full of diamonds with all the shiny raindrops in it. (Mmm, I've got a good imagination haven't I?)                

This is another raindrop hanging from a leaf from and I think it looks like yet another diamond. Isn't Mother
Nature very generous giving us all these beautiful things to take pictures of .

Well, it's Friday again, have a great weekend everybody.
