I'm really grateful for the rain we've had the last few days. It has been an absolutely brutal summer with the heat and drought. Even established plants have suffered and perished. It was wonderful to have a slow soaking rain, even if with the wind, thunder and lightening...I'll take the rain! My kitty isn't so grateful...she hates the thunder! She hides inside the platform for our bed and cries until it the storms pass. She's such a nut!
