This interesting photo is of the reflection of the sun in the water of my full rain barrels! Woo hoo!!!
It finally rained. Really rained. We got 1.15" as noted in my rain gauge report page.
At about 2 am Thursday, we were awoken by a lot of thunder. It was quite the lightening show and the rain came down. It scrubbed all sides of the house, settled the dust, cleaned each leaf, filled the rain barrels and most importantly watered the entire garden. I water, but it's not the same as a good rain. I expect the wild area and the alley to kick into gear with the moisture and grow. Weeds will grow too, but weeding is worth it to get some needed rain.
