Between the Raindrops

Miracles.  A scant amount of rain has fallen in the southern San Joaquin Valley.  When the sun came out in force this afternoon, I grabbed the camera to use on my garden stroll.  Here's a few things I spied.
Chrysanthemums from my pals at work.

Iceberg Rose
Marigolds EVERYWHERE!
Gold Currant tomatoes EVERYWHERE!
Red Flame grapes/raisins.
Rio Red grapefruit loaded on the tiny tree.
Robertson Navel orange
Variegated Pink lemon
There is also items too low for me to capture: lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, mustard, herbs.

Hope the clouds stack up against the Sierras and let loose this weekend.

Just a trace of rain here in my part of the valley but it's in the forecast for the next few days. Nice looking fruit!
Have a happy Thanksgiving!

I wish I could grow fruit like you. Lovely photos. I like the simple beauty of the marigolds.
