Not all of our monsoon storms are crashing, thunderous torrents! Occasionally we get a gentle rain and that is so nice. Here is a close up of some of my garden plants with beautiful beads of rain on the leaves.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
