LADY’S MANTEL AND A SHOWER OF RAIN ~ CREATING MAGIC

DSCF3450

I love my Lady’s Mantel plant in the garden, it’s several years old.  This past summer was the first time it bloomed and I was delighted as the flowers are both interesting and lovely.  But the plant has been badly eaten during it’s last growing period, I hope that now it can revive a bit as I will be cutting down some of the damaged leaves.  Meanwhile though, it’s lovely to see the magic that the rain drops create on these leaves, and with the sun shining there are sparkles all around.

SPARKLING RAIN DROPS

Rain today, and it’s lovely to see the garden so refreshed and beautiful sparkling raindrops over all the vegetation.

And this Crane Fly (?not sure if it is?) was flying around in the house today, stopping now and then to pose for a photo.
