Lansing MI has been so dry for so long that I thought it would never rain again. Thursday it started and finished up this afternoon…the best kind of rain….long and gentle. The result is more rain than we have had all summer.
2.5 inches in my yard. Prior to that I had .5 inches all summer.
I just got a rain barrel last week and it was full in no time! now I want to get 3 more!
The rain does tend to flatten the flowers but most will spring back as the foliage dries. Here are some pictures of my now wet garden….I love it!….click pictures to enlarge
