After the rain

It rained all day yesterday - much needed rain for the plants and to wash away the pollen.  This morning the sun was shining and the garden was beautiful.  I would have liked to have spent the entire day working outside, but staying home from work wasn't an option, so I made myself feel a little better by taking a couple of pictures before I left.

We got a little bit of rain here the other day wish we had some more ;). I like your bird bath, and next to the pentstemon looks great. That Iris is a beautiful color also.

the rain drops on the iris look lovely and so refreshing...in england we are enjoying gorgeous spring sunshine but i expect that rain is just around the corner...

Pretty iris! Sounds like we had the same kind of morning. We had rain last night and a great, sunny day. I have a couple of irises blooming, too. Have a great weekend!

Your birdbath is beautiful and in the perfect setting. I'm glad you got some refreshing rain. We should get the same tonight, hopefully without high winds and tornado which weather man says is possible!
