Soggy is good for a little bit .. helps new plants feel better about the adjustment of a new home ..
.. quenches older plants that need a good long drink before they pull those amazing blooms out for the final show in Autumn.
Sometimes it makes flowers into shapes like those balloon people that can make a "hot-dog" from a couple of skinny balloons .. you know the kind I mean .. those funny hat people who hang out with the baggy pant clowns getting out of those tiny toy cars .. go figure .. I'm FIXATED ?? haha
Rain drops can be really interesting to catch on plants .. but there are those times I can't quite get the camera to focus on what my eye sees and what the camera is looking at ?
So ... there are those kind of in or "make up your mind .. OUT" of focus deals that go on.
Then you just want to mix everything up and drive yourself nuts with a crowd to photograph ;-)
I love mixing fennel and dill with flowers .. potager gardening is my favorite !
One Toad Lily is finishing up while another very tall one is just beginning to bud out .. how I timed that is a mystery to me too !
A long soggy shot .. I tied in Little Lamb just in time or else all those big flower heads would be touching the grass by now .. I don't want to cut them too early .. I like to see a little pink in them before I try drying some flowers again.
OK ... I will confess .. I can't resist pictures of this dragonfly .. I swear he ? she ? is the same charming creature that followed me around the garden the other day !
Mista' G is adjusting to the cooler temps here Cindy .. so don't worry about him girl ! wink wink
