Our property continues to be an embarrassment of riches, photographically speaking. We had a hard rain yesterday, followed by another one right at daybreak today. I went for a run and when I returned the sun was coming out and everything was glistening. Right now, hydrangea, gardenia, day lillies and roses are all blooming.

I picked up a camera with my favorite lens—the Canon 50mm f2.5 macro—and spent a half hour shooting in the wet morning air. This antique rose was one of the resulting photos.
