A rainy day...

This is my automatic rainwater collector!!! I just pick it up, water the plants on my front porch, and done. Lately it has been filled every day by the time I get home from work! We have been having thunderstorms every afternoon since Monday, and you can see the leaf trash that I need to get cleaned out. Our grass here has all turned green and lush again...amazing after a full year of no watering here, and nearly no rain! I thought for sure my grass would be COMPLETELY gone, and surprise, surprise, it is still going strong. This would have been an expensive proposition to replace it...and believe me, all I could think of was rocks!!!!!

Wow! That's a lot of rain. I don't think it would ever rain that much here. We average about 15 inches. Not much!

I wish we could get just a little rain! We've had none for months. Monsoon season starts soon, and although we may have strong winds and dust storms, there isn't always rain unfortunately.

My goodness, Julie. Since I've been gone you have been a busy, busy girl. Everything looks so lush and fabulous! Soon you will be writing a book on succulents. I know where to come for advice....

Hugs.
