Rainy Afternoon

Yesterday after work I went to visit my parents. My brother was in town for the afternoon, so we all had dinner. We got a really good rain yesterday, about 5 minutes after I took these pictures. My mom's garden is looking great! They are getting ready to put their fence up, so after that she can get started on the rest of the yard. Here are some pics from her place.

Jacobean plant
I love this plant stake!
Bee's fighting over the coneflowers!
Pink and white cosmos
This coneflower is a little deformed...it reminded me of Darla's Black Eyed Susan I can't wait to show you pictures of her garden this time next year once she gets all the beds done around the fence.
I need to get out and weed this weekend! We got a good 3" of rain yesterday! So everything is doing great!

DP,
I keep trying to look up your Jacobean Plant and everytime I do it brings up a Sprekelia. Is it known by any other name? I think it's pretty and I want to know more about it.

Wow--your mother's garden already looks great. So many colors and so many gorgeous flowers... I can only imagine what it will look like next year.

Glad you are getting some rain. Your garden will love that (and your Mom's will also).
Hugs,
Betsy

What pretty gardens she has. I can see where you get your gardening genes from. We still haven't had rain besides a very small amount last weekend, not enough to really water anything. This is one of the dryest summers I can remember.

Your mom's flowers do look great. I can't believe you got 3" of rain. You lucky dog!
