Rain!

A hasty note so that I will remember later how long it was between rains this year.  It began to rain this morning, and it is still coming down softly.  First rain we have seen in my neighbourhood since July 14, and I am delighted.  AND -- the forecast calls for more tonight and tomorrow morning, then thunderstorms tomorrow evening.  Oh, Joy!  I can hear the roof gutters gurgling and can almost hear the plants slurping as they get their feet wet.  It has arrived just in time for the big ferns in the back garden.

We are getting rain right now, for the first time in a couple of weeks. There is such a thing as too much sunshine, especially for people who have gardens.
