We finally had some rain yesterday, showers mostly, but enough that the leaves popped overnight. Our rain gauge shows nearly 3/4 of an inch, but we had some locally heavy showers late in the day. Dan quickly sprinkled about some grass seed in some bare areas, and mulched with straw from the hendome. I hope we get enough showers over the next few days so we can skip the sprinkler.
He also got the hummingbird feeders out so I made some sugar syrup, filled and hung them. I hope we see some hummies soon. A few more photos of the flower beds follow — the veggie garden is too weedy to pose for photos after the rain!
