|Not raining, but terribly humid|
|Volunteer salvia and purple coneflower|
And this last one is cleome, my wife's unfavorite plant. Left to form seed pods, it will go invasive in a year. Left to grow tall, it will develop thorns as a self defense. But tenacious thinning of babies will keep its numbers in check. The pom poms behind the cleome are the leek scapes. The scapes if left to mature the seeds, will fall over and may start tons of leeks. But that is a good thing. Easily self perpetuated leek beds.
