Happy Results of the Rain

My poor garden has looked quite parched and sad all summer because of the terrible drought. So imagine my delight when I went home last weekend and found everything so much greener and happier as a result of all the rain we had last week. My lily pond now has more water than it had all summer. The plants look so lush in their watery home.

Most of my flowers struggled all summer, but this Phlox really picked up after the rain. I love its rich colour.

This Fuschia was covered with blooms. If we keep getting rain, perhaps it will continue blooming for another couple of weeks.

This lovely Campanula bloomed for a second time this summer. I found the plants covered with blooms on the weekend.

Until this weekend, I thought this Gerbera was dead, so I was delighted to find big blooms on it - another gift from the wonderful rain.

Isn't it amazing how quickly things bounce back with a little rain? Hope your well is doing better too!
