Have a break

 I've given up trying to grow anything new in this wet weather. Nothing seems to germinate these days.
The utriculari (bladderworts), which belong to my son, love the rain. These plants are so intriguing. Their bladder traps are recognized as one of the most sophisticated structures in the plant kingdom.
 The rain is also great for established plants. My garden is now awash with colour and green foliage. Instead of trying so hard to grow vegetables, I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the burst of colours in the garden for now.
