The forecast was right – we really are getting some rain. Not the wind driven storm type rain that bounces off the dry earth, but a good gentle soaking rain. So far this morning we have had about 0.5″. It has been a month or so since we last had any rain at all, and the gound was definately hard. That thin layer of dust that has accumulated will finally be washed away and over dry roots can now refresh the drooping leaves. The garden will look so much better by tomorrow when the rain has moved through.
Alas it was also ‘Walk your child to School Day’ – not an enthusiastic group doing that today!
