Every spell of rain makes us realise, yet again, that there is really no such thing as bad weather. The sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up and snow is exhilarating. After a hot spell, this region is witnessing intermittent drizzles. Vijayawada is awash with a fresh coat of colours. This is the time when nature exudes rare warmth with leaves appearing greener and flowers in their full bloom turning more fragrant. The Hindu photographer V. Raju captures some raindrops dripping down from leaves, which seem like glistening pearls dropping to the moist earth.
