Rain Keeps Falling On My Head

It's been raining a lot where I live lately. Texas isn't necessarily known for the rain, people on the contrary probably think of Texas as being some sort of dry desert, but where I stay in Texas there are a lot of trees.

Water droplets look fascinating on plants. It seems I will try to get out more after the rain.
