Valencia orange after the rain.
After a month without any rain, this weekend's series of showers and monsoon downpours are very welcome. And maybe, just maybe, our dwarf valencia orange tree will produce fruit that won't be dried up this year. Doesn't that orange look tempting with the fresh droplets of rain?
The hummingbird salvia plant has a lot of new growth now. And the bright colored flowers provide a stark contrast to the otherwise somewhat dormant environment in our backyard. I watched one of our visiting hummingbirds check out these blossoms today between the rain showers.
