one quarter inch of rain

My heart goes out to everybody that lost everything due to the weather thursday morning. It hurts to be deprived of everything....



But this blog post is about how dry it is in the sandhill garden....


How much difference does a quarter inch of rain make?


Well, as it turns out, it helps quite a bit...

The one on the right is before the rain, on the left is after...

I still need a rain-dancer...

The viper's bugloss that I posted about in february is blooming.




This Oak-leaf hydranga is blooming... It's managed to live for a year out here, in spite of last summer being dry enough to lose seedling butterfly weed...



Amarylis bloom...

We got 1/4 last Saturday... everything greened from it. Poor folks with flooding... flood water is such a devastating thing. Flower pics are beautiful!

The news this morning suggested that there's a 1% chance of catching up on the normal amount of rain this summer. The region has been declared a disaster area due to the drought, so... 'preciate the hopes 4 rain, but looks unlikely.
