Usually Hidden and From An Unusual POV

Dama de Noche on a rainy day in Spain

 

We don’t see this beautiful little flower very often because it is usually hidden in the daytime and opens during the hours of darkness to release it’s beautiful perfume.  I’ve written about the Dama de Noche (or night-scented jasmine) before, but it made an appearance today because we had heavy rain for most of the morning, and have had a dismal, cloudy afternoon.  The poor plant must think the evening is upon us already!

Still, we have had a long hot summer and the ground desperately needed the rain.  I know that the sunshine will soon be back 🙂

Anyway, it gave me the opportunity to photograph raindrops on the flowers from An Unusual POV, which just happens to be this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge!

Have YOU had a Silver Lining, recently?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

 

The wild flowers are mostly at an end now, here on southern coast of Andalucía – but there are still a few of these gorgeous poppies about.

 

But, they only last for a few precious, fleeting hours until the petals fall to the ground and each individual flower has gone forever.
