The only raindrops I have seen this week were today whilst I was at work! Apart from that its been lovely all week. Hate myself for saying it but fingers crossed for some rain tomorrow evening!
May the Force be with you.

You'll just have to make some of your own :)

It's been dry here all week too after last Sunday morning when I put the topic up. But I have a hose on standby . .

Surely a hose can't be raindrops?  :doh:

Of course it can. Rain is water falling from the sky, yes? So if I point the hose upwards and the water falls down then it's rain. Obvious :tup:

It did rain last night, rather a lot actually, but I didn't get a shot. So I'm in with one from the previous Sunday morning. Toning done in On1, which I find is brilliant for that kind of thing.

I managed to get a shot through my kitchen window but cannot upload it for another 9 hours as I uploaded 3 yesterday and reached my 24 hour limit. Hope I remember to do it later.

After a week of no rain it threw it down all weekend whilst I was at work. I was late finishing yesterday but managed to grab a quick photo of the rain that had fallen on my car.
May the Force be with you.

As I feared I forgot to upload my comp entry when my daily limit ran out  :(. I only put it in late this morning when I got up and thought  "oops".  I`ll leave it to H as to whether it is included in the poll. I went for an impression on canvas look of a rainy window outlook on our great autumn colour in the garden
