Lilac buds after the first spring rain.
The rain had been pouring all night, and it was a cloudy day outside. When I looked out the window, I was not inspired to go out until I saw the glittering droplets of rain and dew on the flowerbeds and bushes. I took my phone outside and got the best shot I could of the rain dripping off of the lilacs, with their lavender-purple vibrancy.
