When Summer Feels as if We Live in a Rainforest

It rained I think, every day except for two so far in July. Sometimes only a tenth of an inch, sometimes several inches in a short period of time and all in between.

White Begonias and Fern
 

All that rain has made plants lush and green. The grass wants mowing every time the sun shines, it seems.

 
Tropicals are lush. Butterflies were late to 
dinner, but  they’ve found the Pentas.
 
Chartreuse Alternanthera is a fave.
So is Graptopetalum.
 
All my stones have moss.
 
Tropicals like Caesalpinia is slow to put on buds 
without more sunshine. Lantana is slow to bloom, 
butterflies are finding what does bloom.
 
 
One of the greenhouse blogs I read has promised to post
about greenhouse storage solutions. Hurry!
