Rain, Beautiful Rain

We finally got some rain last night. My rain gauge shows just about an inch. Not enough for the poor farmers who are suffering through this drought - especially with triple digit weather predicted for this weekend, but enough to give me the night off of watering. My brown lawn certainly appreciates it. The garden does too - things always grow better after a rain. You can add the same amount of water via a hose or sprinkler - but something about a natural rainfall really makes a difference in a garden. When I heard the rain coming down last evening I was tempted to run outside in it and get all wet like a giddy child - but I held back with adult restraint. I guess the rain dance worked - may have to try it again!
