After the Rain

After a recent rainstorm I grabbed my camera and got some shots of the garden. Hope you enjoy!

Poppy, looking somewhat battered by the rain

Bittersweet, a native plant (or weed, depending how you look at it). Has pretty red berries in autumn and is a nesting site of butterflies. Has an unpleasant smell, though.

Lady's Mantle is gorgeous after a rain. The water droplets look like gems.


Old-fashioned rose. I don't know the name of the variety but it smells heavenly. This flower is resting on a thistle leaf.


A mystery weed (but pretty).

Water collected in an unopened rose.

Azalea

Geraniums I planted in a wine crate.


A nascent onion bloom

Another geranium

Daisies, peonies, and a purple mystery flower.





A closer look at the purple mystery flower.
