We've received a little over 1.50" of rain here this week. I don't have an official amount for a rain gauge report because I don't have my rain gauge out for the season yet. The rain has really made a difference. Everything is greening up. Wednesday was our big rain day with everything from mist to gentle rain to downpour to gale force wind with water. Everything in the garden got wet and scrubbed. It looks great. That is why I took this month's garden tour photos on Thursday.
The forsythia and red bud are blooming. We have daffodils and a few red tulips. The seeds I planted in the vegetable garden are sprouting too. I also peeked at the winter sown seeds today and they're suddenly showing up as well (I was beginning to think they hadn't gotten cold enough since our winter has been so mild.)
You can view the tour photos one post back or in the page Tour Garden On Sherlock Street in the right hand column.
