Mardi Gras in the Rain

By Gardenamateur

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? Today's another wet day. 

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.
