We had rain almost all night. The gauge shows over 2 inches. Very wet soil gave me Topsy-Turvy tomato plants (ha). No worry!! Repair was simple (because I have an area behind the air conditioner with wide variety of “maybe I’ll need this some day” stuff).
Working with the tomato planter, I discovered long-leaf pine needles on the ground under the Bluebird house. That’s an obvious sign that Mama Blue is building a new nest. Oh, extremely happy day!!
Our local TV weatherman says 70% chance of rain today–and similar for next two days. Obviously, I won’t spend much time in the gardens.
Sad note: Nineteen firemen perished in a fire near Yarnell, Arizona. I know Yarnell because (twice) I’ve visited The Way of the Cross and Garden of Gethsemane.
Later: I waited an hour for the picture far left. “Mama Blue” was there, too, with a twig in her beak. I missed the shot!! She flew into the bird house. I’ll keep watching because “I love my Bluebirds!!”
