So glad we finally got rain. My 6" rain gauge overflowed, but I'm not sure it is accurate. The official number is 3.1. Regardless, I am so happy for my garden. I have been watering, but there is nothing like a good rain--and it's free! I have a few shrubs that are only a year or so old and they have really been suffering from the drought. Plus, some of my Japanese maples have brown leaf edges. It is impossible to keep everything watered during a summer as dry as this one has been. Now that the ground is somewhat moistened, I can look for some closeout shrubs. Unfortunately, I have no more room for trees...except I could squeeze in another Japanese maple or two! And spring bulbs, of course.

Janice, I've been following your blogs and I am so with you :) We've had the warmest, driest summer on record. I've never had such an awful summer with my flowers. I have been watering, but it's not the same. I'm still praying for a good rain, no such luck. I'm envious.
