I was awoken at 3.30 this morning by the sound of thunder rumbling angrily; followed half an hour later by the sound of sweet rain which must have lasted a couple of hours – wonderful!
This is the first rain in a month in the garden; surrounding areas, even close by have had the odd shower, here nothing – this was good pouring rain that soaked the earth, as I said wonderful!
As you will see from the images of the slope taken at 13.00 today some plants were in desperately in need of this rain, for some it may even be too late.
Thursday is GBFD, I hope you have some beautiful foliage to share, not like the burnt offerings above; I must share the plants that shine in the drought, that sparkle in the sun, those that give form to the garden in late August. To join just leave your link with a comment, I love seeing what is shining out in other gardens.
Is autumn making itself felt where you garden? Are end of summer storms refreshing your plants?
