Congratulations! Now just watch out for those very un-Alabama-like lows next week.
Hi Phillip, just like you, it has been so long that the sight of it on the weather forecast is a shock to the system. They promised us two inches but we are now at less than one half inch in my rain gauge. Sometimes all around our little microclimate get some without us even getting wet. sigh. Poor gardens. The prediction is close to freezing early next week. Hope you are ready for that! ;->Franceshttp://fairegarden.wordpress.com/
I would be happy with one half inch, the rain gauge reads less that one tenth of an inch. Frances
I'm thankful for the rain as well! I planted onions two days ago, we'll see what happens with them. It's getting cold! We made our first fire last night :) Hope you have a great day!!
That's liquid gold up in your neck of the woods. I bet you have some happy hydrangeas!
I saw this freecycle posting today. Would you be interested? We cannot plant anything in the ground at our place. Just let me know :) I'm sure you could bring them back to a healthy state! There's an email address if you want it."I have two rosebushes. One is a dark pink color, and I can't remember what the other one looked like. They haven't been very well taken care of, but I think that if someone takes them and takes good care of them that they'll do well again. I just don't want to fool with them anymore, and my dad (whose yard they were in) doesn't take care ofthem either. They will be bare-root, so they need to be picked up ASAP. Thanks!"
Never seen that one either! Hope you wanted rain! Looks like frost for us, too. I still have roses, Encore azaleas, salvia, verbena, coneflowers and agastache in bloom. Cameron
100 percent doesn't leave room for much doubt now does it ? So happy to see that forecast, Phillip.There's no substitute to a good drenching rain. We just got one last night and with our cooler temps it'll last longer. My hydrangea was beginning to droop also because I've shut the water off.
Yahoooooooo. Good for you and your garden. I know you probably need more but doesn't it feel great to have all that moisture in the air and soil again??!?
We got around 2 inches between last night and today, how did you all do? Those rainy days feel good when they finally come!
Perfect temperatures for gardening now that the rain has made your garden ready for all those new plants. I will have to try some of those mail order nurseries.
Yippee! You needed that...we also had rain. It was a relief to not have to drag the house around again!gail
Congratulations on your rain, Phillip - it's good to see our garden blogging friends get some of the precious drops on their gardens. Annie at the Transplantable Rose
Phillip, I'm doing a happy dance for you right now. Rain is a very good thing, and often, we don't have enough either.~~Dee
LOL, weathermen aren't much into commitment;) I'm glad you're getting some rain.Marnie
We had an inch and half in the gauge when we got back from our 9 day vacation! Yeah for the rain....
Phillip, such a treat for me to sneak back online for a while to post a few things and to visit your awesome blog once again. Thanks for your comment and kind words on my blog while I was off on medical leave.Best regards, Jon at Mississippi Garden on 11-1-08
