My intention on Saturday was to get lots of gardening done. However it rained on and off and I found myself looking out of the windows to see if it was clearing up many times during the day. That's when I noticed that the windows needed some urgent attention BlushBlushBlushBlushBlush. So, out with the spray and the cloths, and lo and behold some gorgeous patterns on the glass with the background colours from the garden. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I was delighted with the result. The garden looks better through the clean windows too WinkWinkWinkWinkWink

A fine abstract taken from a horrid job!
How do you always manage to make housework into an art form?
I love the garden colour coming through the suds!!!
Maybe you'll motivate us all to do some cleaning (or not!)

What a wonderful job done! I love the way the flowers form a shape of a giant flower with different colours, Helen. A super abstract.

You reminded me that's what I need to do too. I wonder if it's going to be a rainy day. Still to dark out to tell. Great shot.

A very fine watery abstract which works well, can't help but wonder how it would look in monochrome though ...

Love this sort of shot, a natural layer effect! It works because of the vibrant colour beyond. And the focus is spot on, bright and sharp on the bubbles.

Re Kate's comments, there's only you can turn housework into an artform! Grin A great piece of abstract work here, Helen - art that is, can't comment on your resulting housework! Grin

I like the BG colours very much Helen, and the sharpness of the Water looks great.

You have cheered me up no end Helen, so much rain recently what does one do where does one go and you have found the answer - cleaning windows with a shot taboo

Well done, such imagination has to be commended
