We were hot and dry for 10 days and the gardens really needed some rain.
Finally, on Monday (31st) we had 2 storms that gave us 1.7 inches. Yay!
But the first one had vicious winds which blew over all my foxgloves, the taller milkweeds and just about leveled my 10' viburnum. It also grabbed my shade umbrella, tore it out of it's holder and smashed it through the breezeway window. Boo!
On Wednesday we got 1.1 inches. Um, yay again?
Yesterday (Thursday) a storm came through after dark and dumped another 1.4". No yay.
Enough already, we're fine for a while. Really.
But a look at the weather channel predicts thunderstorms for the next 7 days.
At times like this I'm really really glad my house sits on top of the hill...
Meanwhile, I'll be keeping this handy for a while --
