Rainy Day Garden and the foxes visit

It has been cooler the past couple of days, and Saturday afternoon brought a nice rain shower.  I had gone out to water the hanging baskets and the plants under the eaves when it started.  There is something wonderful about sitting on the veranda in the rocking chairs while it is raining.  It is a perfect place to read, or just watch the rain, while the fog and clouds cover the valley.

Rainy Garden Day 1

Those New Guinea impatiens continue to be prolific bloomers, keeping the little tables stable for holding a glass of iced tea.

The yellow torenias continue to grow and bloom, and are spilling down over the inverted pots I used to raise the level of their container.

The lobelias are almost done. The white one has turned brown, while the blue flowered one is still hanging on.

Rainy Garden Day 7

These little purple petunias are still going, even though they usually don’t last this long.

Rainy Garden Day 6

Cooler temps have encouraged the little johnny jump ups to bloom again.

Rainy Garden Day 4

It kept on raining for a while.

Rainy Garden Day 3

I really enjoy a gray day.  Look how huge the torenia hanging baskets have grown!

Rainy Garden Day 9

The real surprise came early Sunday on a foggy morning. DH noticed the foxes were back, playing in the meadow. He grabbed the camera and got one photo of them. Look between the slats of the railing in the middle, they are both there. One is sitting on the driveway, the other is above at the edge of the meadow standing and looking at the camera.  Amazingly beautiful animals!!


Can you see them?
