Today's Flowers & Mellow Yellow Monday

I was walking around Descanso Gardens yesterday when they sprinklers went off. I went a little crazy taking shots of the drops of water on a lot of the flowers. I had such a good time and I think they came out so well. Here are just a few of them.

These are all so beautiful! The gold resonates so well with a little manufactured rain! But that last shot capturing the drops from leaves is just one of those magic moments!

I thought I'd be original in oohing and ahhing over the last one, but it appears that I'm late to that game! So what if it's not yellow? It is stunning!

Incredible macro shots, love how you have captured the water droplets.

You have incredible sense for details. Still can not get over your water strider shot. The kids liked it too. Yellow is my favorite color. It is warm and so "cool" :)
