Creating a wildlife haven one plant at a time

After the rain

I hear leaves drinking rain;
I hear rich leaves on top
Giving the poor beneath
Drop after drop;
'Tis a sweet noise to hear
These green leaves drinking near.

And when the Sun comes out,
After this Rain shall stop,
A wondrous Light will fill
Each dark, round drop;
I hope the Sun shines bright;
'Twill be a lovely sight.


-William Henry Davies


It has been threatening to rain for the past three days and yet it has passed us by each day. Well, that all changed this morning when some strong thundershowers stormed through the area. I really enjoy walking around the garden after a good downpour. There is something very invigorating about a fresh rain. Everything is revitalized and energized. The birds are singing, the flowers perk up, the colors are more vibrant and intense and there is always something new to discover.

Here are some of my finds this afternoon


Gentle cricket resting on mushroom


Frog hoping about the Georgia red clay


Raindrop on Elephant Ear


Fritillary Butterfly ravaging nectar


pollinators on Butterfly Weed
