There is not a gardener in central Texas who is not celebrating the arrival of the first rainfall in months. 2" fell in my garden in the last 24 hours. My plants are happy, the soil is happy I am ecstatic. Never mind that we had to cancel our Sunday walk around Lady Bird Lake.
Last night I pulled all the succulents out in the hope that we would get that promised rain.
The baby kalanchoes decided ti was time to strike out on their own, falling on stoney ground. I gathered them up and put them on the soil.
After a good drink I pulled everything back under cover to dry off.
Everyone is happy.
