Even though it's a Saturday in July, and the day of my son's 30th birthday party, I am thrilled to see gray skies. The plants can use a good soaking, hope they get it. Even groundcovers, like sweet woodruff, and some azalea bushes are brown and sickly looking. The hose can't fix that. Still, I've done my best, and many things survived. Especially the shade plants, caladium, Persian shield, oh here it comes. Beautiful rain.
