The rains we've been getting has caused all the weeds and many other plants grow, I finally have black eyed susans so the other day while photographing Ally, I thought I'd take a few shots of the susan blossoms, well look what's lookin for lunch. Are you getting more than usual rainfall?

The beginning of new wildflowers, Marsha.
We got so much in June that people are still drying out their basements. Since then it's not been too much. The closeup of your flower almost looks like a sunflower. I have some new flowers blooming finally that i planted from seed. Let me see if I can upload it.

We have gotten enough rain to help keep the plants alive. That's about all. They keep saying it's going to rain but it usually doesn't.

I imagine your country gets plenty of rain to begin with so that extra rain does no good, am I correct?

@rebelann In fact we are in winter now. That's the reason we are having such bad weather.

Yes, I knew you were on the opposite season range @Nawsheen but still, you get more rain than we usually do. I recall seeing a photo of your country as being really green and lush .... probably a summer photo.

It's been strange all over the world, places that usually get a lot of rain don't and then there's the deserts. Heck, Arizona recently got flash floods which is very odd.

In the life of a planet it could be a normal transition @dollaboy but since we do not live that long we just happen to live in a time when our planet is going through what could be a normal phase, of course the level of destruction done by humans does not help it much.

Oh yeah, you're on the other side of the seasons. Does it get really cold over there? Do you ever get snow? Oh good grief, I sound like a 3 year old

We have had more rain than I ever saw before. I'm glad I live on a mountain. Even Lake Ontario is flooding

It has been a really strange summer so far. But the last few years have all been strange somewhere.

The only water we get is from the hose. We could use a good downpour.

That must feel wonderful. I love sunshine but because we usually get a lot of it the rain we have been getting is such a relief

Haven't seen a black-eyed susan for many years. When I was a kid there were a lot of places where flowers grew wild. Now, it seems that progress has taken over every little corner where the wild things used to grow.

Aww, how sad. I think progress means using far too many herbicides and pesticides so that those flowers were not pollinated properly so disappeared. It's really sad when you stop and think about it.
