Excuse while I gloat, no maybe I should say float. We are getting a much needed rain. I am sitting here in my office watching the water run between our house and the neighbors house.
I haven't seen this all summer. You can see that the neighbors small tree didn't make it through the drought. Neither did the hostas under our Pansy Redbud.
With water collecting in the paths
and all getting some much needed rain plants will be able to recover and survive the winter.
I won't have to fill the water feature as I have had to do every day. The poor birds and other critters haven't had puddles to bathe in. Today and tomorrow they will have fresh rain water to luxuriate in.
We have over an inch in the gauge. Can't wait to see what we end up with. Such excitement!! I won't get anything accomplished until it stops raining. The air feels so fresh and clean.
