APRES LE DELUGE

another 4 inches of rain leads to photos of wet flowers... monarch visits wet tithonia torch...echninacea 'sundown' blazes against pavers in the potager...
bee enjoys dripping sunflower 'mammoth'...
rotting dombeya leaf reminds me of disappearing effect in the "time traveler's wife"
osprey successful after morning of fishing... looks like he hasn't dug in yet...
rose 'heritage' reblooms in the wet...
japanese anemone back is more beautiful than the front...
passiflora 'pura vida' is my favorite... passionflowers really like tons of water...
beets picked this morning from the potager...
morning glory 'heavenly blue' iridesces in the overcast morning...

Love these Em...the rain has made for beautiful photos! The disappearing leaf is wonderful...and I do love the rain on those pale pink rose blooms!
You are right about the anemone...how interesting it is to view things carefully from all angles. In class we have been drawing a lot of botanical things and making a point of finding the angle that is most compelling. Your beets are incredible!
I'm proud to say my old washing basket and wheelbarrow of herbs and leafy salad greens is now doing quite well...and making for lovely fresh salads to accompany a simple dish. Your patager is so inspiring Em!

I love "Sundown".
I'm loving my J. Anemone too. They're so delicately beautiful.
