More Rain Equals Happy Plants

Two days of off-and-on rains ended up dropping 1.4″ of rain on my garden. Walking around last night and this morning, I saw plants that were much, much happier than they were a couple of days ago, both from the rain and from the cooler temperatures. And if you garden, you know exactly what a happy plant looks like. And I took advantage of the wet soil to pull up some weeds that would have fought much harder had they still been anchored in the concrete-like clay that had been there before the rain. Here’s a song that embodies my garden this morning (although it’s called “Before The Rain”, it’s still the way things felt this morning). Enjoy!
