One day this week we had 4 or 5 inches of rain, this wheelbarrow full of water is from that storm. The crushed shell residue is from my work on the cleaning and touching up the pathways in my garden.
Below you can see the cleaner part at the bottom of the photo is the new shell, well water irrigation has been staining the shell rust, and I have redone the irrigation so it doesn’t spray on the walkways – the rain helped by compacting the shell.
The rain also made this fungus open and let loose their spores. We called these puffrooms when I was a child. And stomped on them.
I had to tie the Snow Peas up.
The rain also gave me some flowers: Pineapple Sage (Salvia elegans)
And a new flush on the Porterweed (Stachytarpeta jamacaensis)
A little rain can be a good thing, it has been fairly dry here lately. I just looked at the weather radar, more storms on the way!
That’s the six from my garden this Saturday.
