Lovely Sight

August 30th, 2008

Yesterday morning when I went out to look around, I noticed that many of the plants were drooping low with the weight of the rain from the last 2 days. We really needed rain, so I’m glad they’re bending to the ground heavy laden with water than with wilt from lack of it. The asparagus fern was particularly beautiful since each of it’s feathery branches was covered in tiny drops. What a lovely sight.

I got 250 gallons of water in my rain barrels from the last system that moved through. Can I get a Hip Hip Hooray?
