After the Storm

After being stuck in the house for a couple days of torrential downpours, I ventured out and captured the positive aftermath of all that rain.

Chipmunk checking out the best approach to find more food.

Interrupted ferns in the shade garden.


Of course, all the rain makes the weeds grow faster and taller as well.

These Day Lillies will soon be showing shoots and buds for the flowers that will appear later this summer.

Common Blue Violet.

Yellow Milkwort.

Lillies of the Valley growing under the deck steps.

These saplings are used by the birds to launch themselves at the feeders.

The Mountain Flamingoes are being overrun by the vegetation.
