    Yesterday, after a bit of rain over the night, the Morning Glories were very happy.

    I noticed one of the vines has climbed up the Pine Tree. The arch is about 8 ft tall, so I am not sure how far up the vine goes, but it is VERY high up in the tree.

    Yesterday afternoon about 3:00pm we got about an inch of rain in about 15 minutes! It was pouring like mad!

    Here is the rain coming off the roof.

    I was busy preparing for a congregational meal that was to be held outside at 7:00 last night. Thankfully by 5:00pm the rain clouds had dumped most of their water. and we were able to have our first night of Sukkot out under the stars.

    Here is a photo from last night.

    Quote:Much to my husband's dismay, I attempt to keep a nice English Country Garden going much of the year. He tells me, "Heidi, the Holy One Himself doesn't attempt to grow such things in the Sonoran Desert!"
