“It's so dry the trees are bribing the dogs.”
- Charles Martin
Good afternoon my dear friends, I hope this day finds you in great health and spirit.
The only thing missing so far is the rain. As much snow as we had in the winter and as much rain as we had in April, May has been relatively dry. I actually don't remember when it was the last time that it rained here, I think it was somewhere around the 10th or 11th. Especially in the tiny little area surrounding our property. I kid you not, there was a great big pour down 5-10 minutes from us on Monday, but completely missed our little village. It rained at my friend's house, it rained at Angelina's school but it remained bone dry here. Life is not fair sometimes. By this time last year we've received 89 mm of rain (during May) and April 2015 yielded almost 50 mm. So far this May we've managed only 14mm. Rain, pretty please.
So as you can see garden needs some extra attention because without all that watering I'm doing, everything in sight would die especially plants in containers and the new transplants in the ground. I'm hoping Mother Nature will turn a loving eye on us sometime soon and sends us a great big thunderstorm with some good deep soaking. Just to be clear though, I want the heat and the sun to continue... That's been great so far.
