there goes the rain

it was seriously grey overcast this morning.  the weather said zero chance of rain.  i guess they meant later.  as i drove off to work it started to mist and then drizzle.  it may have just followed me to work and left the garden alone.  this afternoon the clouds were replaced by blue skies.  and it did not seem to have hurt the flowers.  though the moisture may have done in the pollen.  maybe.  it does not hurt to try a few crosses.  perhaps it did stay dry.  and the garden looked great this afternoon.  the flowers were not faded by the rain.

      While the rain is also helping the daylilies look fantastic, it is also keeping me out of the garden. It is amazing what a little sunshine and a ‘few’ flowers can do to turn the tide…
