After a couple of weeks without rain in which the lawn dried out a little and I began to think about gardening, it’s wet again. Thunderstorms a couple of nights ago have been followed by persistent rain and showers. My lavender photo above was shot just before the rains came, during a period of optimism, as was this shot of the nandina berries.
Yesterday, I wandered out into the garden between downpours. Raindrops of the magnolia tree’s leaves, and handing from the Nandina berries proved difficult to capture on my phone with the breeze that was threatening to turn into something stronger.
This morning I found this little guy in the courtyard; the first I’ve seen in ages and perhaps a sign that there is food in my garden again.
