After the Rain


Last night it rained, a lot. Since I'm not a big fan of the rain, my favorite time for it to rain is overnight. This morning when I went outside to pick up my newspapers in the driveway, I noticed how everything is nice and clean. I took a moment to look a my garden, and decided to snap a few pictures. Spring is bringing flowers, lots of flowers this year, but also LOTS of weeds too! Try to ignore the weeds as you look at the result of lots of rain this year for sunny SoCal!










The above plant is from Annie's Annuals. Brande planted it several years ago, and it has turned out to be this crazy kind of vine plant that pops up everywhere in my garden. Seriously, this plant is everywhere! It gets these weird flowers, as you can see this one is starting to bloom. After they bloom though, you are still left with the crazy vine. Looking for something fun to do today? Stop by Country Roads and lose yourself in about 15,000 square feet of "stuff"!

Your garden looks beautiful. I to like it to rain at night rather than during the day and I always love how clean everything gets wnen it stops. My side garden is so full of weeds, I hate to think about it. It's on my big "to-do list". I know that once I get started though, I'll be glad. I love your vine flower and all of cute elements in your yard, it very inspiring for Spring. :O)
