ABC Wednesday.=R.

ABC Wednesday. To see who's participating go to Mrs Nesbitt's Place.

This week in ABC the letter is R. = RAIN STORM.

With a Flash of Lightning,
A Roll of Thunder,
The Heavens Opened,
And Down cam the Rain,
We had a Mighty Rain-Storm.

The first I thought, thats a Monet! Then i red mikes comment and he had written just that. Hope the weather it´s better today.

Old Wom Tigley said...

One of the nicest pictures I have seen in a long time Imac :O)
Like others I was reminded of the style of Claude Monet... but our very own 'Old Master' is to be thanked for this stunning view.

Not forgetting what an excellent R post this is aswell.

As Mike said, it really looks like a Monet! Cool photo for a R post. It's nice to watch the rain falling when you're warm and cozy and dry somewhere! :)
