Another Rainy Day

More thunder, more rain. Some of my gardening efforts have been TOO successful, and I'm going to have to prune back or move some of my plants, they're beginning to crowd each other in places. A couple of weeks ago I accidentally stomped on one of my firebushes, breaking its stem. I just stuck the severed stem back into the ground, and now its flowering! I can't believe it survived. Mushrooms are sprouting everywhere. Every day I find more of them dotting the lawns. Being from California, I've always associated mushrooms with fall and winter, but here an abundance of fungi appears to be a summer phenomenon.

Lots of chickadees are at the feeders, and I heard a Pileated Woodpecker again a short while ago.
