We’ve been getting these freak afternoon showers everyday this week. Of course it’s not enough to really make a difference in the garden overall, but it does seem to cool things off a bit. I really liked the way these raindrops just beaded up on this canna leaf. My rain barrels are getting low so I’m hoping for a real downpour soon. But it’s August now, our hottest month in the summer and I’m not holding my breath. This summer has been unusual for us, because we usually are in a drought by July 1st and this year we actually got more than our average for the month overall. Here’s hoping that everyone’s summer is not too unbearable and that we get some occasional showers to cool us off as well as the plants. Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
