|This was my view of the Port of Los Angeles Saturday afternoon once last week's storm passed|
|Late afternoon brought a rainbow|
|And this was the sky as evening fell on Saturday|
The rain hasn't instantly produced much in the way of new blooms but I still found enough to inspire me to fill 2 vases. My Grevillea 'Superb', a year-round bloomer, is simply loaded with flowers at the moment and the availability of a single rose in a similar hue clinched the color scheme for my first vase.

The pink Alstroemeria in the backyard border have already produced a few flowers but they were past their prime before I noticed them. When I saw two more flowering stems plastered against the ground by the last rainstorm, I decided to use them as the starting point for a second vase.
|I sought out plants with touches of pink and yellow to complement the Alstroemeria|
|I almost prefer this back view without the Alstroemeria|
|Top view: Many of the paperwhite Narcissus were also plastered to the ground by the last storm so they got cut|
|Clockwise from the upper left: noID Alstroemeria, Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold', Leucadendron salignum 'Chief', noID Narcissus, and Pyrethropsis hosmariense (aka Moroccan daisy)|
