Raindrops, Flowers, Garden Delights

Summer passed by in the blink of an eye, and now cold winds and rains have returned. In my garden, magical things have begun to happen. My corn plant erupted into crimson silk, which is none other than a little corn in the making!

I have never grown corn before so this is all very mysterious to me. Why is corn silk so pretty?
Lush strawberry plants hide pink fruits and white flowers.
Pumpkin flowers peek out among the large fronds, bursting with vivid yellows and orange. Did you know that pumpkin flowers are edible? My co-worker brought some for me to eat, lightly dusted with egg, salt, pepper, spices, and cheeses, and sautéed. They were actually quite delicious.
My pumpkin plant explosion - I'm so proud! Who would have thought that last year's jack-o-lantern's seeds would grow so well!
Out of all the beans I am growing now, this one is the most delicious.
And it's flowers are a delight!
However, nothing beats fushias after rain. They look like jewels.
I hope you are enjoying the rain and the fruits and flowers of your labour!

Lol, yours can't be THAT bad, can it? ... can it?

Actually, only the plants look good. The lawn cries in dried brown grasses and bald patches.
