Nature Notes: After the Rain

We had a thunderstorm with heavy rain last evening and I went out afterwards to catch the waterdrops clinging to the plants.

My pitcher plant, Sarracenia purpurea. I don't weed the pot and I counted seven different plants not counting the pitcher plant growing in there. Yellow woodsorrel, narrowleaf plantain, a plant I cannot identify (the one no the left behind the plantain, it returns every year), barley, something I believe to be a pansy, moss and a little oak - I believe that a jay may have forgotten about storing it in the pot last winter.
