Refreshing Rain

After weeks of summery weather, we are experiencing some welcome rain.  To brighten things up, I have picked a few roses and other flowers from my garden to share ~


Other than that, I have uploaded a youtube video showing a day of sand art...


As everyone is well aware, August is rolling on by and the nights are growing longer.  Last night I glimpsed a brilliant rosy sunset through the trees, but unfortunately missed seeing it at the beach, which must have been absolutely glorious.  The sunshine and warmer weather will return before too many more days pass, and hopefully I'll get out and about to capture some August Scavenger Hunt Photos!
