Hope y'all are having a great weekend.
I was thrilled that we had rain yesterday evening...a LOT of rain! Three and a half inches of rain, and the plants are loving it.
This morning, I walked outside to see how things looked, and to take a few pics to show you.
This is one of the volunteer Cleomes that appeared this year. It's funny, because we haven't had any Cleome for three or four years.
Volunteer tomatoes. I guess the ones on the left are cherry tomatoes, but they're almost as big as ping pong balls.
Don't know what the others are... but they look like one of the heirloom varieties we had last year.
Caladium, Carolyn Whorton...new in the garden, this year. In case you think they look a little haphazard, it's because the bulbs I planted were re-landscaped by the squirrels.
The mystery plant on the left, is probably a weed, but since I don't recognize it, I'll leave it for a bit and see what happens.
Anyone have a clue as what it might be?

The fig tree is loaded this year. We cut it back drastically this winter, but it's still huge and has more fruit than ever.
Here's the fig bush beside the house, so you can see it's size.
The old crepe myrtles along the drive way, just behind the fig, are higher than our house...probably 30-40 ft. high, and perhaps as many years old.
Sedum and creeping jenny~
I caught a quick pic of Sophie checking out the back garden.
She's hoping to find a chipmunk, or snake, to play with.
Glad you stopped by to see what's happening in our garden.
