Flowers can look quite good in the rain. Obviously, they're even better
just after but... anyway. Before the Deluge, we had plenty of sun but not
many flowers, because it was only March. Back in those days I found myself hay making. Nick had cut down the long Karl Foerster grass around the Roman
gods at Brooke Hall and people were getting a bit red in the face. It was not a great time to take pictures though, because it was all too
glarey. Now, after the dismal, dull, dreary and depressing downpour it is easy to forget
about Spring. The news is, it's still happening, and paid professionals go on
working from eight till five making gardens look lovely, for someone to
look at. It's an excellent time to visit gardens, (through the NGS or
otherwise) because you might have the place to yourself and the really
intensely hued flower petals are easier to photograph.
Just trying to be positive.
