    I took these yesterday in the rain but didn't have time to post them so you can see them today instead.
    I know it's a different month but one day doesn't make much difference :biggrin:

      Thank you Michael ... it is so "refreshing" to see raindrops on petals and leaves. Everything looks amazing.

        Thanks @Victoria you are very kind. All this warm rain makes everything grow profusely and it can end up a tangled mess so I've been doing a lot of cutting back and weeding (and sometimes I think it's still a tangled mess :heehee:)
        I hope it's helped you feel a bit more comfortable after seeing my wet garden.
        It's hot and sunny today ...

          A totally different scenario here, again taken late yesterday. Campsis radicans done from seed sowed last year starting to romp away up the new trellis in The Courtyard ...
