It’s been quiet around this here blog hasn’t it? Sorry about that. It’s been raining in this Sonoma Garden, and in every other Sonoma garden too, I’m sure. It’s been an incredibly long time since it rained last. In fact I think I’ll be so bold as to say that I really don’t think it’s rained here (beyond a few light sprinkles) since I’ve started this blog. Back in March! That’s a long time. It’s been a dry year and our water bill has shown for it too.
All the plants look so green and alive after a good rain. You can water with a hose until you are blue in the face, but it never quite revives a garden like a good rain can. In fact I think this might inspire me to go back into the garden and write about it again. In the meantime, my rainboots are drying and I’m heading out to vote. Don’t forget to vote!
