The title says it all! Fortunately the wet weather is being enjoyed by the roses, and giving me something to photograph whist the bugs and beasties are still in hiding (or been drowned!).

A beautiful image - having a black background really brings out all the gorgeous colours of the rose (plus those water droplets add that something special!).

Yep, a lovely image Carol, works very well indeed.

We actually had a day without rain yesterday and the Sun shone....back to normal today I believe. Sad

Your title could equally well apply here too, Carol.......the wettest winter I can recall and things have been far worse in other parts of the UK.
But how nicely the raindrops decorate your rose: two lovely presentations.

But the rain has helped make these images so beautiful Carol. We are so lucky in the north of Scotland where this winter has been drier and milder than normal unlike the rest of the UK where there has been terrible weather.

Lovely shots - at least the flowers are blooming! We've had 3 sunny days here in London, but that's due to change soon! More rain due here any time now! I did see some snowdrops in Kensington Gardens last week, so can't really complain about the flowers either!
