Having survived the constant rain, this pretty thing wasn’t going to miss a minute of bloom time.
The rain beat off the petals on the dogwoods, lilacs and the last of the daffodils.
Already, the rain is back. The only plants that still have flowers, are the ones in bud that refused to bloom until this damaging rain stopped.
The flood gates are closed. Many folk are sand bagging hoping to save thier home from the continuing rains. Huge, hundred year old trees have topled over onto many homes.
Even the herbs and vegetables are just sitting in the soggy ground, not growing.
Still, it was nice to see the sun and remember what it looked like.
The Napeta (cat mint) is just waiting for a few hours of golden light to really produce those lavender flowers that the bees love so much. This is a favorite, long blooming, no fuss perennial. Makes a great mounding ground vover.
Now for a bit of a cat nap on this rainy afternoon. (I love to sleep when it is raining.) Isn’t this Iris a lovely color?
