OK, so maybe I'm going a bit overboard with the enthusiasm. According to the rain thingy (can't spell gage!) , we got just over an inch, and I'm not sure when DH put it out last night, wasn't there yesterday. So...I'm thinking we finally got enough to make up for the drought we had going on for the past month. I really hope other areas around here that were worse off than us also got enough.
Yesterday when I saw the big blob of green coming (courtesy of our local TV website, Channel3000.com), I got the yard mowed (actually more like evening out the weed-tops!) and even did the trimming. Now everything can grow back like it was in June, hopefully. (translation: GREEN) Also got the ferns I "liberated" from an abandoned house into the ground, they'd been patiently waiting their turn in a 5 gal bucket since last weekend
I haven't been outside yet today to inspect "the grounds"...gardens on all four sides of the house means it's usually a tour rather than a casual glance out the window. Sunflowers which were up to the roofline seem to still be standing, although the dill underneath has gone rather horizontal. Time for more pics, see ya later!
Well it's official. We got .75 inches of rain here Thursday night into Friday morning...or was it Wednesday night into Thursday morning? Who cares, it wasn't Monday or Friday, so I wasn't paying much attention! The weeds in the lawn said "why thank you for the drink," and the rest of the lawn gave me the finger. :) I've been watering only the veggie garden, containers and the fruit trees, think the grass got jealous.
So we're not on the drought list, yet. Up north, they got up to 5", so they're going to be OK, I hope. Tomorrow I'll mow just to even out the lawn, as the 7" tall weeds look really silly next to the almost flat, still rather brown grass.
