I recently bought a couple of these straw-like flowers for my garden but I don’t remember what they’re called. Today, I’m just happy that they are getting watered by Mother Nature. It’s finally raining here!
I know the focus isn’t great on this second photo but, to me, it’s still beautiful. After more than seventy days of no measurable rainfall, wilted plants, dead lawns, nearby forest fires and trees shearing off due to heat and lack of water, I have come to appreciate the beauty of rain.
Lesson learned, Mother Nature. I don’t think you’ll hear many complaints about too much rain here in the Pacific Northwest. Not for awhile, anyway. 🙂
