Hi Dan, and all,
We haven't had a drop of rain here in S.Minn. since June 13, when we 
had 6 inches in 24 hours!  Then I was depressed looking at one bed of 
hostas in standing water.  I spent the entire day yesterday watering 
just hostas...I use a hose and wand rather than a sprinkler.  But in 
early June I remember calling a friend, very excited about how 
beautiful an artemesia looked right after a rain when the sun came 
out and the plant looked so brilliant.  I was going on and on about a 
maroon-red iris in bloom in front of the deep red foilage of a 
...I just felt so good as I walked around after the rain... So, Dan, 
it isn't just you, I think everyone feels good after a nice rain that 
doesn't destroy anything!  I sure wish it would rain here, because my 
main task this morning is to water daylilies, etc.  However, the 
weeds don't seem to mind the dryness...they just get harder to pull!
