I can't walk on my path so wet and slippery. Rain isn't absorbing but puddling. So I walk on ground cover.
There are tons of Rain Flowers all over the yard. A single stalk with a white tip that opens to a 5 point star. They last a few days, flower dies and stalk produces a seed sack which bursts open to spread seeds again
It is still raining but the storm tracks over us then moves just NW to edge of storm. Rain lessons but doesn't stop. Then it come back and pours more heavy rain.
SA is flooding, road closures, etc. Kids live NE area and they are finally getting downpours.
My front porch is soaked truly. I did not bring plants in as no high winds. My plants are so happy, especially the Umbrella tree. It had 3 tiny branches budding on it. I now have
5 new branches growing from base of trunk. The longest is at least 8 inches long and flower is 5 inches across. There are budlets growing along the top of the two branches. Its a surprise at how quickly the new stalks have happened. Nothing grew there 4 days ago. I'm impressed.
Charlie was soaked when we came back in. So was I & I had on a heavy bad weather jacket. Its water proof but still was heavy rain. Lol.
Its to wet to put birdseed out. Will hope for a lull. Hummers are all over even in rain. Haven't seen baby yet. With so many hummers I may need another feeder. Both feeders are in constant use.
Well I'm hungry.... I fed Charlie, Chance & Cats. Now its my turn.
If your getting rain I hope it's not severe. Have a great weekend and be safe.
