A Second Look--October 3, 2012

I got my feet wet during my Second Look this week because we had some really hard rains yesterday. I enjoyed exploring the rainy yard because raindrops, like snow, make everything look better. 

Here's What I Found During My Second Look this Week.

The rain brought out a new bloom of mushrooms.

Raindrops on bleeding heart leaves.

Raindrops on balloon flower.

Raindrop on dwarf Japanese maple leaf.

This is the only bug I found braving the rain. Usually they are everywhere.

Raindrops on Siberian iris leaf.

Spider's web

I found this praying mantis on a hydrangea the day before the rain began.
