Here are more images of plants in the garden after the rain.
These are some of the plants with soft hairlike fibers, above Mexican Salvia and below Lambs Ears. The raindrops are caught and held longer by the multiple fibers.
Usually the Mexican Salvia is quite dormant this time of year, with no blossoms. But I think all the water from the rain we've been getting is stimulating this growth. But the temperatures are also dropping, so it will be interesting to see how long the salvia will bloom.
The wet Lambs Ears look like matted fur, but they also look very refreshed. I noticed more of them popping up around the garden.
