It's been summer afternoon thunderstorm after thunderstorm here lately. It can be a bit annoying when you get caught outside in it, but the aftermath is always intriguing.
This was from my first (and probably last) cookout of the season. It was from my friend in Greenpoint's garden (actually, her evil landlord's), and it's a clematis, one of my favorite climbing flowers. They really put it all out there once they bloom.
It's less flashy, but this is my Christmas cactus who went out for a refreshing shower on Sunday. It rained really hard, and it looked like it was stretching its arms to come back in afterward.
