And the garden grows

DSCF1129.JPG We had heat and more over the planting time. The perennials came back into their own during their season of growth. And then this weekend when the ground was dry, we got rain. Straight down, plummeting, nourishing rain to refresh the plants and earth. We had two of those short-lived rains but it was good. Dad often said that the slower rain was better and less damaging, but we didn't have too much wind so the rain we had was still good.

I lifted the net on the garden on Friday and got most of the weeds. The rake got stuck in the netting a few times. There'll always be weeds to pull.
