Rainy Days

Sweet Autumn Clematis
It's been a few rainy days here in Connecticut, but it wasn't bad enough to not go outside and photograph the Sweet Autumn Clematis that has begun to bloom. This sweet-smelling vine is a highlight in the fall garden. It grows really quickly, which I consider an asset in my third-year garden.

I even sowed some peas and carrots during the rainstorm last evening while waiting for Rob to get home from work. (The rain has brought some cooler temperatures along with it.) The neighbors must have thought I was pretty crazy to be out in the pouring rain, hunched to the ground underneath an umbrella and playing in the dirt.

But then again, maybe they weren't.

You can see the rain falling behind this white anemone that should bloom very soon!
