After another day of misty drizzle the garden flowers are thoroughly wet.


Some, like this Lark Ascending rose, are relatively weather-proof, others hang their heads under the weight of accumulated water droplets.


As the open flowers of the Autumn Delight rose soak up the rain their petals turn to a delicate network of translucent cells, fragile but fleetingly beautiful.

The Autumn Delight rose seems inappropriately named as it always starts flowering in June.
