We received some rain last night, so the yard which was looking pitiful and brown is looking a little greener today. The rain cooled things off, too. Yay!
I put the laundry in and took a walk around the yard to see what the rain did for the trees, grass, and bushes. Here's what I saw-
The pine trees and shrubs are greener, but what I love is the different shades of green here.
The fig leaves have gotten huge! I should have put something for scale next to it, but note the fig on the branch. It isn't a tiny fig, but a medium sized one. The landlord had cut the tree way back two years ago but now it is bursting over the clothesline again and butting up against the shed. That thing sure grows fast.
These old latches are on the shed next to the fig tree. I just liked the texture and the whimsy of suddenly there being these unexplained metal loops on the side of the shed that had no door or window.
Dandelions in the hay, plus one seedhead.
Here is a very cool 1:41 time lapse film of dandelion to seed head. Beautiful!
The pears are coming along nicely.
I was watching what was happening in the yard, while this bird was watching me!
