First Rain

I have to say it was nice to hear the rain coming down this morning. Everything was so fresh and beautiful. The droplets were really sparkling off the plants; especially the mexican feather grass (above)

The deck plantings have really gone crazy with all this hot weather. You can hardly see any pots! Our new lemon tree is just starting to get buds and I see lots of beans starting on our bush bean plant.

See all the little blue flowers in the middle of this picture? That's blue star creeper and I'm absolutely nuts about it. I pretty much have it everywhere. It flowers all summer and usually stays pretty green all winter. It spreads easily but doesn't take over.
