On the heels of our big wind storm came rain, a few days of it. We'd been lucky enough to have a couple rainstorms in August. Add to that this latest rain and the soil is delightfully moist for at least a couple of feet down. (I was digging holes to get some of the plants in the pot ghetto planted.)
Looking out from the back porch, the leaves were glistening with moisture.
I felt compelled to wander around the garden to see the rain's artistry.
Clerodendrum trichotomum continues to be a humming bird magnet (there are still some blooms.) Their diligent work has paid off in a bumper crop of berries.
Abutilon 'Red Tiger'
Cotinus coggygria (Smoke Tree)
A tuberous begonia.
Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis)
The mirrors look quite different in the rain.
