Rainy days have been rare around here for more than three years. For over a week now, it's rained every day. We aren't complaining since we need the rain and even with all this rain we are still down by more than 13" for the year.
Through the misty day is this view of my neighbor's colorful red oak tree
Not exactly the bright reds of a New England fall, but then we won't have to shovel more than a hundred inches of snow this winter.
Papyrus is happily sending out new shoots in the rain
Artemesia 'Limelight' is a bright spot on cloudy days
White Icicle Radish leaves are brightening up the garden too
Gray santolina isn't used to being all wet, bugs usually avoid it so I was surprised to see this one
And raindrops on the vertical Hesperaloe parviflora foliage which is taking on a purple hue for the winter
Rain is predicted through next Tuesday which would mean 11 rainy days in a row. Almost impossible to imagine just a few weeks ago.
