Summer Vacation

In late spring each year, I move some of my houseplants to the front porch for a “summer vacation.”




Plants like this orchid cactus seem to thrive by being outside.

Shasta Daisy After Rain

Our area has been inundated with spring and summer rain.  Last week, we had ten days in a row with some amount of rain before we finally had a break of one whole day of sunshine.

All this rain does make for some interesting photographs, though.  And, finding cheery flowers makes any day brighter.

You may ask, “What’s your favorite?”  I’d have to say, “Every one!”
