Rainy Day Flowers

You know summer is here when you start seeing flower displays like this popping up all over. This one belongs to my neighbor Pat, across the street.

Obviously my brief war against the dandelions didn't last long. June 0, dandelions, well, too many to count.

Flowers everywhere have been slow to come this year, but my trollis, aka "the pretty yellow flower," is trying.

Budding continues...
Raindrops on leaves

More raindrops on leaves. Can you tell where a flower is eventually going to pop up?

On any given day the library is one of my favorite places to go, but I especially love it in the summertime. They put out a stupendous flower bed and it's just now beginning to emerge with its bursts of color.

This one looked like it'd feel satin-y to the touch. It's right outside the library doors.

Just one of many such bursts of vivid color in the flower bed fronting the library on Main Street. As you can see, it was gathering raindrops

One of the other cool things about our library is that they have hanging baskets all along the outside wall along the parking area. Lots of color!

The rain was giving this more or less red circle of flowers a bit of an exotic feel.

Perhaps I was having a bit of a "let's collect raindrops day" myself, only in my case with the camera.

Raindrops are falling on my head.... but isn't the result lovely?
