Finally, some moisture from the sky! That makes the gardener's life So Much Easier. We got .7" by my back deck rain gauge. Today I'll check on the thirstiest of the plants (hydrangea, new perennials, spring-transplanted trees), to see if they need more.
Soon garden cleanup will be in full swing. I always hate to start it, feeling there's more beauty to come. But I look forward to my winter vacation from the garden!
