Like many parts of the country, it has been a long, hot, dry summer.
My garden was just barely hanging on even though I watered and watered.
Hose water can not compete with a good soaking rain.
Thanks to the remnants of hurricane Isaac, we had two days of rain!
Two whole days of downpours...followed by more downpours!
It puddled in the backyard!
It puddled in the side yard!
It over-flowed my rain water collection bins!
(This is a simple way to catch/save/use your gutter water for the drier times!)
It poured off the awnings and in the road!
It dripped from my fennel blooms!
It over-whelmed this morning glory bloom!
It knocked off flowers onto the plants below!
And it made the lichen on my bench stand out!
The sound was lovely and the air is fresh again!
The garden is (well) watered!
