Rain Lilies

You know the rainy season has arrived, when rain lilies start popping up all over the garden.  This morning when I went outside to get my Sunday newspaper, I was greeted by this beautiful sight of rain lilies in bloom.


 
We had constant rain for the last four days, and more is forecast for the coming week.  The grass is high, (wet grass is not ideal for cutting) the garden looks unkempt, the rain-barrels are over flowing and the succulents are not happy.
 
This Monk Skipper butterfly is taking in the early morning sun.
 
This week we purchased a new umbrella for the back patio, my frugal wife got a fantastic deal after using many coupons. The total cost including free shipping $40.


I am on Instagram.  Now you can see many pictures taken with my IPhone and posted to the DragonFlyGarden page.  Originally Instagram was only available for phone and IPad users, but now it's available to anyone with a computer.  Instagram is fun, easy to use and popular around the world.  The program is all about sharing pictures with users with common interest. 
GO HEAT !!!

The rain lilies are beautiful! Your blog always makes me miss Miami.

Thanks for the info on Instagram - I didn't know it was available on PCs. I'll have to check it out.
