Rain was in the forecast on this morning, and sprinkles started as I got into my car. The rain became heavier as I neared my local botanical garden, so I sat in my car in the parking lot, hoping for the rain to ease up a bit. I was either going to get wet or come away empty-handed, so I grabbed my camera and umbrella and had a very productive short visit. My camera and lens are weather-sealed, but I gave up when I started feeling wet and cold. Just look how beautiful a rose can be in the rain!
