According to our rain gauge we got 1.3 inches of rain last night! Woohoo! Now we just need to get around 2.5 more inches, and we'll be all nice and caught up for August. Of course, we're still behind for the year. I haven't been out to take any pictures because of the rain. And even though it hasn't been that hot, it has been sticky. The kind of weather when you stand for a couple of minutes, not exerting yourself or anything, and still start to sweat. Nice, huh? It's just me and the kids for a few days, so I don't have a lot of time when I could sneak out to take pix anyhow. The most exciting thing about to get going is my Solidago "Fireworks." One of my faves. Can't wait to see it with my Black and Blue Salvia. I'm thinking I may divide the Salvia, and spread the joy to other parts of the butterfly garden. Mom picks on me for digging stuff up, and dividing it, but it's a great way to keep a plant's size in check, put more color around the garden, and more often than not...share!
