Lovin' the Rain

Storms today, and we got almost an inch of good soaking rain.  8 tenths of an inch in total. I love it.

Before the storms hit, we went down to Northford to Natureworks and I picked up an interesting Caryopteris divaricata 'Snow Fairy' --- neat, small shrub with variegated foliage that smells like green peppers.

And I got an interesting buddleia with pale green foliage and orange, very modest blooms, almost more like little lantana flowers than big butterfly bush spikes. It's called Marmalade. Yum.
