A week after we hit record high temperatures we're looking out the door in amazement at a dripping world.  The stapelia is still blooming, and looks fresh with a sprinkling of droplets across a ready to open bud.  A younger bud waits its turn among the fleshy stems.  Will there be flies by the time it opens?

A few tomatoes linger.

This shadow on the underside of a privet leaf turned out to be a small fly, minettia flaveola, dead from what appeared to be too much wetness.
