More Rain & Thunder On Saturday Morning

Another night and morning with Thunderstorms came through North Texas, today. Kevin and I can’t really do anything, we planned for the backyard, this weekend. But the weather didn’t stop me to shoot more photos of the moisture, that was still left on the plants in frontyard and the backyard.

Mealy Cup Sage

Last year, I planted a few Mealy Cup Sage plants around the water fountain in the frontyard. We’ve got a few blooms, but not many of them. This Spring is the second year for these perennials. And they are thriving in this weather. Since the Mealy Cup Sage is facing the south side of the house, the plants get tons of sun and the warm radiation of the bricks in the evenings. Hopefully we’ll see some butterflies on the blossoms soon.

Painted Lady Butterfly In November

In Texas, we always have blooms all year around. On the warmer days of late Autumn, the butterflies appreciate the flowers and visit the gardens for nectar. This Painted Lady I’ve photographed a couple of years ago. It was a nice afternoon in November.
