Drenched Pansy

Uploaded: May 12, 2012 06:01:17


We visited the park after a recent rainstorm that was so ferocious it felled a few trees. Many of the small pansies that are in large concrete containers outside the visitor center were nearly smashed - this is one that apparently survived the onslaught. We'll be gone visiting family today - have a great Saturday, everyone!

LOVE this, Monnie! A fav for me! Marvelous colors (love purple and green) and such amazing detail and clarity. That big rain storm felled all of our rhododendrons and demolished some other flowers as well :( #10135359
