When I saw this WordPress Photo Challenge : Details, my train of thought was something like this

Details – Macro – Do it NOW and DON’T Resort to Looking in the Archives – Flowers – Garden – Raindrops – Flowers in the Rain (the song by 60’s group THE MOVE) – YouTube – Rain has Stopped – Go Outside with Camera.

I do enjoy giving free rein to my train of thought and seeing where it will take me.  This time it took me out into the garden as soon as the rain had stopped. Before posting my photographs, I’m going to listen to The Move singing Flowers in the Rain. I’ve added the YouTube link at the end of this post.

(For younger readers The Kaiser Chiefs brought out their version of the song in 2007.)

    Thank you. I’m old enough to have danced to that music when it was brand new!

It’s due to rain in Johannesburg on Monday … I’ll let you know if it does. 🙂

    You do that!

      I promised I’d let you know ….
      It did rain. For about five minutes! Hardly worth the trouble. We are hoping for a better show tomorrow, but who can believe the Weather man, right?

        I suppose one day out of 365 weatherman bound to get something right!

    Thanks Laurie. A song from my youth
