so as not to give the impression that nothing is blooming in our garden right now, here’s the view from our back porch. consider this a subsequent garden blogger’s bloom day post. in spite of the drought, life surrounds us and we are glad.
p.s. we received a whopping one-tenth an inch of rain yesterday evening. the blue buckets in the left of the image above have about two inches of yellow-green rainwater in them, as the rain conveyed the roof’s accumulation of dust and pollen along with it. guess we’ll consider that solution a fertilizer treatment for the non-edible container plants.
