Rain Walk with Mica

It's been raining for days in Atlanta. Thunderstorms in the spring here make for some of the most amazing blooms and light in which to photograph them. During a break in the downpour this afternoon, Mica and I went for a Rain Walk in Grant Park. Here is what we saw.

I love this spot near the gazebo where old christmas trees are recycled. Each year you can watch the tall pile of dark greens break down and fade into reds, browns, chartruse.

We had never seen a tree that bloomed what looked like hydrangea blossoms that hung down like giant pom poms.

I had to take a pom pom home.

Oh Sara that is SO beautiful and it really, really makes me miss Atlanta in the spring. Always my favorite time. Even though it is very beautiful here, and exciting to discover what blooming things we have in our yard - Atlanta is special. I hope to be able to see some of it next week. Thanks so much for the pictures.
