Mardi Gras in the rain


In Sydney it has always been true that it doesn't rain, it pours. Yet we also seem to have another pattern going lately — drought or flood. July was dry and cool, rain-free, then it has done nothing but rain all August. Guess what? Another wet day is forecast for today (but at least it's a sunny start!). 

Yet out in the garden one team of plants is having its own little Mardi Gras in the rain. The poppies are still popping, and though I posted something about them just a month ago, here's some more popping good cheer to enjoy.
