I was surprised again with RAIN againn yesterday evening late. Got just a fraction under 3 inches this time.It was really coming down for a couple hours and got cooler/ Sure is a relief from this hot weather.The weather channel is saying we will get more rain tomorrow and monday, too.What a blessing to finally get some rain.I sure wish it would have dropped a little in jUNE AND JULYJean

I know you really needed that rain. Yes, those daylilies sure do perk up as soon as they get a good drenching rain.

Hey, Jean, thought I had sent you a message this morning, but see it did not post. Just wanted to say I'm thrilled you got some decent rain. It really makes a big difference--just watch those dls perk up and turn green!! Avedon

Always good to get the liquid gold. :-). More rain is due here on Tuesday. Seems like we've had rain more often now that we are getting into fall.

Raining here today Jean. Suppose to rain all day and into most of the evening. Just makes cleaning up the garden that much easier when the sun comes out again. :).

JULIA> You have been getting rain pretty regular haven't you?This is the first good rain here in about 4 or 5 .months,and I was sure cheering it on. hoping it wouldnt stop for the rest of the day.I still have some more weeds to pull out, but, my back has gotten worse the last few months,and is hard to pull the weeds out.I have started going out every few hours, looking at how pretty and green the leaves has gotten on the daylilies and each time I pull out a big handful of weeds. a few more trips outside will just about get another bed weeded out, then I sprinkle Preen out.

Yes, the rainfall is coming regular now. More due this weekend again IF the weatherperson is correct. Makes the weeding so much easier.
