Here to stay…coming back another day…
With no rain to speak of for a few months it seemed, and then three weeks in a row of serious rain things are a bit…soggy. The mosquitoes aren’t the only happy life forms at the moment though.
The sweet potatoes have blossomed and blossomed again.
And the bee butts are grateful.
The fungal mat is showing its true colors…
Including this interesting specimen who starts out in tiny pillars that open into perfect little raindrop goblets.
As unhappy as my onions are (I’m pretty sure they’re goners) the lemon basil has a mind to go from occasional herb plant to full on ground cover. I may have to help that little broccoli out before its trying to push through a jungle.
More rain expected for the next two days, and it started again yesterday. I do hope everyone stays safe this time.
The heavy rain/flooding forecast appears to be a bust and that’s okay. Perhaps, we’ll dry out just a bit before the next round.
We could use a little extra time to let it soak in and run off for sure!
Thanks! A couple are new for me, which is always exciting.
We also are getting lots and lots of precip. I never complain about sky nectar! The fungi love it,and I love fungi. Love the little ‘goblets.’
I got a whole new blanket of them in the mulch yesterday. They start out kind of yellow like undersea star moss. Super cool!
I love the idea of “raindrop goblets!” Well said AND well photographed.
Thanks! They’re so cute.
I also love your rain goblets, we call them fairy cups in our garden! Lemon basil is one of my favorite herbs. We dry tons of it for tea over the winter. It pairs really nicely with coriander.
Fairy cups! That’s fantastic.
