One little rain drop on this beautiful rose -

I was walking the three-year old twins to school in the rain feeling quite miserable with the weather, when a little voice starts singing 'Rain, rain go away..'. Not to be outdone the other starts singing 'Twinkle, twinkle little star ...' and before I knew it we were all singing and jumping over puddles. People we passed smiled. So the background to this rose represents three people, singing and brightening the daySmileSmileSmile

A wonderful response to yesterdays upload, thank you, and a special thank you to Eric (gypsyman) and Ray (Billyray) for their User Awards.

Thank you for looking
Carole

Yes,it does you good to let your imagination run wild now and again Carole,
otherwise we would never had films like,''One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest'' !!
Good shot here.
And proof that there really is a fine line between creativity,
and being stark raving bonkers !!
