We have rain!

According to the rain gauge on my deck, we’ve had around an inch and a half of rain today. It came slowly and steadily, just what the poor, parched soil needed. Unfortunately, some farmers say it is too late, that their crops are already gone. I can’t recall any summer in the past where we’ve had such a long, hot, dry spell. Here’s hoping the remaining months of summer will be less severe.

But today, I’m just thankful for the rain!

If I hadn’t watered the Mandevilla every day, it would have dried up and died weeks ago. Fortunately, it didn’t seem to mind the hot weather.
