Rainy day in the garden

Today has turned wet and there has been a steady downpour since noon … all of which should be a cause for gloom but instead it seems to have brought one corner of the garden into its own.  At this time of late spring/early summer the lilac is on flower. there are drifts of forget-me-nots and the shrubs have just put out their new leaves … al of which actually looks so much more pleasant under grey skies and mellow, late afternoon light.

I took a couple of photographs and also played aorund with some “artistic’ options in Photoshop … gardening is a splendid enterprise:
