Hillsborough finally had an appreciable amount of rain on Sunday and Monday accompanied by some lower temperatures - so here is a picture. It was only last summer that the HNJJ was photographing a sunny day in the midst of rain.
We have been trying to determine which plants have been permanently lost to this summer's heat and drought and which may survive, especially our more mature bushes - for example, the rhododendron in the front yard. For some, the final viability conclusion won't be reached until next spring.
Damp ground makes it easier to weed. Up until now we have been able to avoid weeding by swearing that we will get around to it when the temperatures are little lower.
Well, I have to go outside and weed now...
