NO SUCH LUCK. We had some wind and dark skies but all blew through
without<br>a drop. I am watering just to keep things going. This weekend
one of the<br>local nature centers had its annual spring sale, featuring
several local<br>nurseries. Usually, I come away with a load. I didn't
even go this<br>year...too difficult to keep new things going right now.
It has turned<br>hot and dry, especially for April. I desperately need a
good rain dance.<br><br>Bonnie Zone 6+ ETN<br><br><br><br><br>>

some puddles out back and it flattened a few<br>> things, but that's
