Some snaps after the Rain

It was still a little windy but I took a few snaps anyway. Have always loved the deep green color that you get after a good rain.
The pink & yellow of this Lantana is so pretty together also have a Sweet Potato vine and blue & white Bacopa planted in the pot.

Don't have many Herbs still planted but this just keeps coming up every year. I do need to take it out and plant something that will shade the roots of the Clematis better. Maybe next year.

Pin It!


  1. That is pretty Lantana....I've not grown it for a few years, need to look into for next year. I didn't plant even close to as many flowers this year as I usually do. Just too tired to keep them all watered. Decided to take a year off. I've got my three hanging pots on the front porch, my yellow plant on the table and a pot of Lobelia and Diamond frost by the bench. Then I planted black eyed Susan's in the planter box with dark red Gerbera daisies and more diamond frost. Then just my fireplace wire baskets and my little garden cart. A couple ferns and a pot of white Impatiens on the back porch and that is it. I usually have double that many!
    I love that clay pot you have the fern in. I really need to invest in a few better pots. I tell myself to just buy one or two a year till I get a good group of them but I just hate to fork over the 40 to 50 bucks for them.

    Both of your images are wonderful....I like the Lantana one the best but both are good. I like the saturated colors of post rains too! Especially when the sky is still cloudy with just a touch of sunshine peeking through.

  2. That clay pot is the top to the old Chiminea that got broken when a storm brought a tree down across the patio. Instead of throwing it in the trash I sat it in the flower bed and just stick a pot in it.
    I'm on the look out for some urn type pots maybe if I find some that aren't clay I might be able to afford them.
