|What a blessing to have our senses in order enjoy all that you have described to us within this piece. Ah, the lilacs. Nothing can surpass their fragrance for me. As a child, I would voluntarily go out and pick lilacs off the bush in our yard for my mother. She, in turn, would put them in a vase, replenish their broken spirit with cold water, and the fragrance of lilacs would eminate throughout our small home for several days. Such sweet memories. Thank you, Diana. I can't believe it has taken me almost an entire year to respond to this lovely piece. Forgive me.

|I love how you captured the new moment Diana.
It is one thing to express ourselves when we feel
pain from life's unfortunate experiances, and just as importantly,
as you have done so masterfully, and captured the precious beauty
offered to the dawn and your eyes, on the aftermath the rain.
Sweet, sweet, sweet!
Love and peace forever

Rain cleans and refreshes everything in our world and allows us a new appreciation of all things in our life, especially flowerful gardens.
And it also provides a platform of experience so that if we suffer and endure a deluge of rain in our social and emotional life, we are able to hang onto the hope of a better and more fulfilling life, our spirit refreshed with the knowledge that our life once again will know "fulsome beauty, bounty and eternal energy."
Isn't rain one of God's most magnificent gifts?
My dearest Diana, I know well that you have known times of rain in your life; and so it is a blessing from God to know that you also can see what is possible, "After The Rain."
With a loving heart,

|Hooray for the rain, but darn glad it decided to stop for awhile, huh, Diana? We could sure use a bit of that moisture here in sun-baked south Louisiana.
By your vivid description of your garden you have a plethora of beautiful to the eye and sensuous to the nose flowers.
