Oh, no !! Not my Calibrachoa !!

Time & temperatureThis is the scene when I looked out my window at seven o’clock. It rained **all** night!! The gauge couldn’t contain all… so I speculate more than two inches of rain. The ground was very soft (near the rain gauge) and my foot was ankle-deep in mud. The weather needs to clear before I can upright the planter and attempt to rescue my beautiful Calibrachoa plants. A mole has endlessly tunneled around my yard. I speculate the soft ground plus the weight of the planter caused it to topple over. (Click each picture to enlarge for better view.)

Calibrachoa is doing extremely well.
