For the first time in a week, blue sky, sun, water receding. Thoe forecast calls for increasing clouds, more rain. We hope that is place, this micro-climate is spared.
The good thing about the rain is that there are toads everywhere and salamanders. You must be careful where you place your feet.
And the Gladiola bulbs I bought at the dollar store, sure to rot in the ground, are poking through, living. The lilies may well do the same if they could get some sun.
