Today, it is raining, a slow and steady beneficial rain. Rainy days are supposed to be dreary, but I find nothing dreary about this day! We are happy to see this rain, complements of the now defunct tropical storm Beryl.
The ferns from the front porch are enjoying this rain. This rain will make these Boston ferns grow.
The lantana is enjoying the rain, the plants had cried out for this rain. water from the garden hose does not have the same benefit as rain.
The rain on the leaves of this begonia will drip to the soil, making its way to the roots. Some of the rain will be absorbed through the leaves. The results will be a lovely, healthy plant.
The rain began sometime during the night, I know that it was raining early this morning, and has continued all morning. Gently and steadily falling rain, good for the plants, and good for the hearts of those of us wishing it's return.
The orchard needed this rain, my truck, Willene, was happy to see the rain too!
Welcome rain! Thank you for visiting us today, please stay for awhile!
