We had rain all early
morning then on and off all day and raining again now.
During a clear period
i dug ourt a bed of tawny daylilies to give to a
coworker.  Oh wow - was it
ever humid! Sweatcity! Started raining again, so
I took a drive and delivered
them.  The rain was welcome.  Hope the plants
can store up some of the water
as it will be in 90s all week.
30% chance of rain over the next several days.

Way to

make me jealous! I got brown desert, dirt, and the
barest hint of
a cloud
way
way off to the south. It is a pleasant 99F
with 11% humidity
and no
wind.
On
the plus side, yesterday we did
have clouds, and at least 10

raindrops hit our
windshield on the way
into work. Woo-hoo, moisture!
Last
night we blew off
team penning
practice (husband is showing signs
of
strain after weeks of
rushing
from work to home to horse event three

nights a week) and I started

getting the onions out of the garden.
Should
have grabbed the red ones

earlier, many of them are not in the
best shape.
The yellow ones - Candy
- are
looking good, I'll see if I
can't get all
those inside this
weekend. Some of
them were under stress
though, they
have those
bizarre extra growths.  I have
plenty of
tomatoes to play with
too,
I'll make chili sauce and canned tomatoes
since I entered those in the

fair. I'm running a bit late on
getting my
entries done but it's par for
the course this year.  I doubt I will
have
available half of what I

planned to enter in the garden
competition, oh
well.
I might be able
to substitute some tomatoes for the pepper
entries.

Rain... again

It's
been raining for much of the last 3 days. And NOAA
says we've got a
lot of the
same through next Monday PM. Not easy to
tour
the plantation
between
cloudbursts, but I did notice quite a few
baby
starfruit this
morning--and I
didn't even know the tree had
bloomed.

Pleasant surprise. Unpleasant
realization: we're almost out
of mangos,
one
more picking, two at most.

The
orange
jasmines--including the one I
nearly killed with the
wheelbarrow full

of softener salt--are in their
third or fourth bloom
cycle. And when the
flush
of small, multi-petaled
white flowers is
assaulted by driving
rain, it looks
like it snowed in the
front patio.
But snow never
smelled this good.

The
Barbados cherry is
in its third bloom cycle,
too. It's a mass of
pink and
white flowers. The
first two cycles
produced heavy crops of
fruit, but I don't
know if this
one will--the
rain may keep the wasps,
bumblebees, and other
pollinators
at home.
Usually when it blooms, the
wasps and bumbles get
possessive and
let
you know you're not welcome in
the neighborhood until
they've had

their fill. I've had bumblebees,
which show no interest in me when

they're
working on avocado flowers,
dive-bomb me when I go near the
Barbados

cherry when it's in bloom.
