The May long weekend is considered the first camping weekend of the year. It is also the weekend that it often snows in the mountains (on the campers). This year it was cold and snowing in the city. Many of the trees, bushes and plants bowed down to the snow. Lucky for the plants the snow did not stay long and didn’t damage any of the trees or plants.

As the snow ended I headed out to create some images of the rain and snow. This is one of the soon to blossom Peonies in our yard. The rain beads on this bud and magnifies what is beneath the droplets. I find macro photography a great opportunity to slow down and observe what many do not see.
