It's been raining again. I rushed out a bit ago and took some photos while it let up. I think we had two days of sunshine, and now rain again.
I have many blooms that are waiting for sunlight to open up.
I do love the rain. Why is it that one sleeps better when it's raining, I wonder? I just want to cover up and snuggle in with the dogs and sleep another hour or so.
But Charlie Ross has different ideas. He wants me to raise the blinds and let him out so he can track the squirrel that aggravates him so.
He will see it from the bedroom window, then start his Charlie growl and run fast as his little legs will take him. Careening around corners, and trying to come to a stop as he reaches the patio door.
I will let him out and we all know he's never going to catch the naughty squirrel that taunts him, but he's never going to give up.
About a month ago, a longtime reader and friend from Simi Valley, California sent me some of her sedum.
I have them all around in various pots.
So here some of them are, Annette, for you to see growing in my patio gardens.
Remember the tree a bird or squirrel planted at the little blue house a few years ago? Well, here it is in the same pot it was inadvertently planted in, going strong.
Not sure what kind of tree it is.
It is helping the other two trees shade the house plants, vacationing outdoors for at least part of the summer.
Though at night, it doesn't feel like summer. I have the heat on. And last night I got up and put on long sleeves because I was cold. Such strange weather!
I love the perky little African daisies. Soon they will be joined by my daisies from last year that have buds on them. But seem to be waiting for more sun to bloom.
The pansies are still going strong, many from last year. They will make their bow and go away once warmer weather arrives, as they like cool weather.
This is my fall mums. I did not know they would bloom before fall. But they are packed with tiny buds. I don't know a lot about mums. Do they bloom both times?
And so this is what I've captured for you in between falling rain in my neck of the woods.
What kind of weather are you having?
I did a tutorial on creating a custom hovering Pin It button last night over at my blog tips blog if you want to try and see if my directions make sense.
