When the world hands you rain, make lemonade

It’s good to get out with a camera, even on a record-setting rainy day in February. Even under the raindrops, it’s a beautiful day in the neighbourhood.

I think the covergirl picture is bridalwreath spirea (Spirea vanhouttii) making with the pearldrops.

Definitely privet (Ligustrum) berries. People don’t think of privet as ornamental, but they can be in a sunny location. The privet flowers smell pretty, too. That looks like bamboo in the background.

Ornamental grass. Grasses are a big gap in my plant knowledge. But these ones in G’s garden at the end of our street have an all-season grandeur.

[Ed: G’s grasses are Miscanthus or maiden grass.]
