Rain, finally

We finally are getting good rain and a tad of hail.
San Antonio has been almost 100 days without any rain.
I keep watching the rose arbor to see if it blows over, as that is where the cardinal nest is built.
Looking at the radar it looks like we will get more for the next couple hours.

RE: Rain, finally

I am glad that your getting much needed rain. Hail, not so good as it can shred up the plants and destroy blooms.

RE: Rain, finally

We got a good bit of rain up here, no damage. Everything is so fresh looking now with all the accumulated pollen and dust washed off.

Hope that rose trellis held up.

RE: Rain, finally

The arbor and the babies survived the wind.
We got about 1 1/3 inches of rain.
It blew over that huge pot of bouganvillea. You are right things look so pretty and clean.


RE: Rain, finally

Oh man, I am so glad you got some rain. With all the fires in Texas, that is a welcome thing.

By the way, we love San Antonio. We have visited there several times, and I hope the next visit is soon.
