Pagan Eye: Flowers in the Rain

English people are always grumbling about the weather aren't they? Last year it was too wet and I was moaning about the snails eating everything in my garden, this year we get a few weeks of real summer and I've been moaning that I'm too hot.

Well, last night it rained - really rained - and it was lovely. This morning I wandered around my garden enjoying the cool wet grass under my feet and photographing the raindrops on my roses and hollyhocks - and remembering an old hippy song from the 60s or early 70s called "Flowers in the Rain" that seemed just right!

And I'll try not to moan about the weather any more - although maybe it is just a bit too humid still :)

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it. I'm not quite sure what I'll be including - it could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.

The hollyhock is lovely :) My (late) paternal grandmother had two long rows of hollyhocks planted at the edge of the slope leading up to the top story of her barn. She told me that she planted them there so that the drivers backing the fully loaded hay trucks wouldn't run off the slope & dig up her ground. There were beautiful...tall, mostly white with purple centers, a few white with pink.

Hollyhocks are among my favourite flowers. I normally get a lot in my garden of all different colours, but this year only three came up :( I'll collect the seeds later in the year to plant next spring.
