Rebirth after the storm

What does this pretty purple flower make?

Why, handfuls of pretty yellow snap peas!

We are actually seeing signs of rebirth less then a week after our horrible storms.  The tomatoes even popped back up and we have a new leaf on the banana plant we had outside that got destroyed:

Our pineapple on the other hand has seen better days:

And I bought potted herbs this past weekend because it seems that all my seeds were washed away by the several days of rain we got and we really needed some vegetation where they are to prevent erosion.  All in all though it's not as bad as I thought it was.  We will have to replant spinach and lettuce but most of our tomatoes are doing well and we even have a few flowers on them and a few peppers.  Hopefully we won't see a storm like that again for a long time, if ever.  Picking up from it has been slow, but seeing our garden bounce back gives me hope.
