Thanks all of you!   This has been as stressful for me as it has the plants.
Yes, it was a good slow soaker.  I'm guessing around an inch and a half, but
will know better when I check the rain gauge tomorrow.  50% chance of some
more on Thursday.  Hope they're right about that.  We're a long way off from
normal, but this sure helped!  My St. Augustine is already looking greener
and happier!

Oh, Pam!  How wonderful!!!  I heard on the weather channel your area was
supposed to get a GOOD rain!  Was it slow/gentle enough to actually soak in?

I sure hope so!!!  I know you have needed this break for far too long a

Friday it was in the low 60's here, so I went out and started cleaning up a
couple of beds.  As I pulled away debris to put down a little more mulch, I 
could see our crocus poking their grassy leaves and the tulips, too!  UGH!!!
Then of course we went to freezing yesterday and today.  Of such is life.

Enjoy the upcoming lush new, refreshed growth in your garden, Pam!

Glory be - it's raining here!  Woke me up at 1:30 this morning.  I had to go

out on the porch in my bathrobe to see it to actually believe it.  Sugar is
sulking but oh well.  I am so thrilled to see it!
We're 18" behind w/ this drought.
