Inspiration comes in many forms. Sometimes it is a very small element of a bloom, such as the gentle curl of this iris.
or the intertwining leaves of a tuft of Solomon's Seal...

or the way light reflects off of this sundial...
or the way the rain puddles into droplets on these lily leaves...
Rain adds an entirely new dimension to plants in the garden--bringing sheen and sparkle. Sometimes the light seems to create jewel tones.
