It's a wonderful Monday. After a very wet late winter the summer has been dry, with most of the rain falling in the southern part of the state, not here on The Edge. But this week! It rained yesterday, it's raining today, and it should rain tomorrow. Nice, slow, steady rain. A gardener's version of a wet dream.
Panicum virgatum collapsed over my front door tomatoes (I plant sweet grape tomatoes by the door for snacking while in the garden)
The rain has wet the "fur" on my Lamb's Ears Silver Carpet (Stachys byzantina)
The Amsonia Halfway to Arkansas is dotted with raindrops.
And a volunteer plant. Well, fungus. I'm still happy to see this.
