A lavender overload hits the cul de sac every year about this time and today Casey showed up on a break from Frisbee framed by our contributions to this neighborhood color scheme - purple rhododendrums and the pale, showy Korean lilacs (left background and right foreground).

After two days of steady rainfall - no, actually, unrelenting downpours - the skies opened up this afternoon with a sunny payback, so we took advantage of it with a walk on the interurban. Immediately catching our attention was the impressive growth spurt of flora occurring in less than a week.
New and old genus in all directions seemed to grasping for daylight as Casey and I passed each cluster. Check out the horsetails or snake grass, living fossils from the Paleozoic era and most taller than the kid. This abundant plant, an invasive weed if found in your yard, was practically nowhere in sight last week.
