Can Plants Smile?

I don't really know the answer to that question, but after this rainy weekend, they all looked a lot happier to me.

It has been raining on and off since Friday, complete with high winds and a power outage Friday afternoon, but the rest of the weekend was just right for staying inside with reading, knitting or whatever else you do in the quiet times.

Sprinkle by sprinkle, everything got greener and more lush. If there was any doubt that we were in "full foliage",  it's gone now. Here are a few pics I took along the way.

Sorry for the less frequent postings, but I figure you will all be here soon anyway.

At last, green on the septic.

Rick in a green shirt with all the other green.

Blossoms on the berry bushes.

Very happy ferns.

The view down the road - nearly a canopy.

Thoughtful plantings along the roadside.

Raindrops on this ball of grass.

The woods have  completely filled in.

Devil's paintbrushes in red and yellow.

Thirsty no more.

Big moose tracks on the straightaway. Should have put my foot in for scale.
