wound up bringing much needed rain
and a cooling to the already heat blasted area.
When a good rain like this comes along......a few days later, the grounds turn green.........
usually with weeds. But if you look at the green growing in this area of my flower garden,
you will see that this is a carpet of wild Prairie Aster.
It is growing wonderfully in every area and along side of my walkway.
Along with it is the wild yellow daisy.
Prairie Aster grows thicker and taller and is filled with vibrant purple flowers throughout summer and into October.
This is all flowers. The areas that are just earth........will be planted with zinnia in a few weeks.
The rain also brings out many creatures. As most of you know by now, I show you a lot of photos of horned toads that grow abundantly here on the grounds............
but I don't think I have shown you the baby ones which are precious and cute!
This one is smaller than a teaspoon.
(click on photo for a better view)
They are so small when they start out and they camouflage well in the area they are in.
How about you?
Is all of your snow gone?
Are you covered in dust..........or are you getting good rain?
maybe too much rain??
I would love to hear!
