After the Rain

I’m wearing vintage Ralph Lauren pants, baby pink bandeau top (from fabric remnants) & a vintage hat.

I love rain. Even when it gets in the way of picnics and pictures like it did this weekend.

The roadside flowers, too wet for the bee,
Expend their bloom in vain.
Come over the hills and far with me,
And be my love in the rain.

In between rain, sunshine, and more rain, I snuck out to take some photos in front of a striking gothic-style church, but couldn’t pass up photographing the flowering rose bushes and Crepe Myrtle tree across the street. DC is so beautiful in the summer, isn’t it?
