While Waiting For Rain

A little rain is predicted.  Of course the gardener rushes to get a plant or two moved in anticipation.

And anticipates that the roses will soon be soggy blobs of greyish mold.  But not yet...
'William Shakespeare 2000' has had an excellent autumn.

Properly guarded, too.  It's been a banner year for mantis.

Just a few flowers on 'Fourth Of July', but the Clematis helps.

The watering can makes a temporary vase...

'Geranium Red' towers high in the autumn.

The slightest touch of autumn color in the Japanese Maples.

The small Aloes are staying dry under cover

And the Aeoniums are waking up from summer sleep.

No major events; no drama, no excitement...

...just the usual miracles of nature.

  1. You are waiting for the rain, we are supposedly in the rainy season but it feels like dry season. The plants are also drying up. Maybe we are starting it early because of the El Nino, OMG, I wonder what happens in the years to come. It is said that in 2021 there will already be a very obvious rise in temperatures and some plants and animals will be extinct. OMG lets pray for miracles!

  2. Yes, it's worrisome. We gardeners and the farmers sense the climate is changing...and the scientists know...now the rest of humanity needs to pay attention.
