Precipitation Photoshoot

Beneath a constantly percolating cloud colander parky temperatures prevailed throughout the day.

I stayed at the computer while the Assistant Photographer produced the

precipitation photoshoot. Click on any image to access the gallery where each picture bears it own title.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s spicy mango and lime piri-piri chicken served with chilli-potent savoury rice topped with omelette, followed by apricot jam tart and custard, with which she drank Hoegaarden and I finished the Fleurie.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. What is the gorgeous shrub with the hanging white blooms, pictures above the euphorbia? I tried the gallery but the title didn’t appear for me. (It will be my fault undoubtedly.)

    1. I think you mean the white solanum – entitled “raindrops on solanum” – I’m sorry that didn’t work for you. We have several. They are very prolific. Thanks very much, Jessica.

  2. Heerlijk, zoals jullie eindeloos prachtige foto’s maken van bloemen, takjes, planten en een parasol in de regen. Ik denk er niet eens aan, om mijn fototoestel/camera te pakken als het regent.
    Het lukt allemaal zo moeiteloos bij u: tegeltableaus, mozaieken en alle foto’s aan elkaar … Of ik ooit zover zal komen … , ik probeer het elke keer weer opnieuw en moet alles uit dokteren … , uit vogelen of uit proberen. I try … , yep! Thats it … , we try … , and we will win the blogbattel … * * Amsterdam, 24 – 9 – 2020, 3.25 uur … Hollandse Zomertijd …

  3. As I can’t access the gallery from my phone, could you tell me the name of the plant with the cactus-green leaves (they do indeed look like a cactus in the way the point upwards like swords).

  4. “constantly percolating cloud colander” ? Please don’t turn into Dylan Thomas, Derrick. I thought I’d finished with him at school.
    Seriously, though, the pictures of the allium seed pods are very good, but I definitely prefer the black and white one.

  5. Praise for precipitation and precipitation photos! YAY, Jackie! Gorgeous photos, all of them!
    I especially love the bejeweled flowers…and the leaf photo where the jewels seem to be clinging to spider webs. ???
    I love letting the rain fill the watering cans and buckets…the plants, trees, flowers, veggies, etc., love the rain more than the like the water-water. πŸ™‚
    And, Derrick, your alliterations are absolutely amazing and admirable as always! πŸ˜€
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

  6. That rain was much needed and much appreciated – and so were Jackie’s photos and your clever text, Derrick. Thank you for being so entertaining. Oh, and your dinner description had me salivating! ❀
