Noah, send out the loon!
About three weeks ago, it had rained 4 days and 4 nights without stopping (not 40). I missed my front steps something terrible. I had been looking from various windows at my soggy plants. When Noah was testing for dry land he first sent out a raven then a dove. I was the stupid loon that volunteered while the rain was still pounding to go out. Check out my watery night time results of impatience.
This zinnia performed very well.
This was just planted this fall.
The shastas were just added in Oct.
Yes, the loon(me) went out in the dark, in a cold rain thinking that I was taking the final soggy flower pictures of the year. This must be the delicious colorful sight my slugs see in the dew soaked night while they munch on glossy leaves.
I rushed out the next morning, still just as loony, to survey the damage of 4 days of rain (shaking water out of opened rose blooms. I said I was a loon).
The sun did shine again and life continued. I sat in my swing sunning more like a lizard than a loon. My camera capdtures more than plants and landscapes. My camera catches me being me, a loony bird.
Enjoy nature and enjoy life.

But such lovely colours, well worth getting wet over! Is that first rose a Rosa MÃ¼ndi?
Hey Droopy, can you hear me laughing out loud at the idea of a headlamp and torch :) We are kindred spirits. The rose is new and it is not Mundi from its original label but isn't it a look a like?I can't recall the name but I know it was not Mundi.
Well done in braving the weather to get your photographs D2D. I must admit to doing exactly the same kind of thing myself. Even deep snow doesn't stop me snapping piccies of my birds and plants. Love your little frogs btw!!!
Those are beautiful plants all the wonderful colors Thanks for the photos.
