One of the more vibrant times to observe the yard and garden is just after a rain when the sun is beginning to shine. The rain replenishes and nourishes the plants better than any watering I could do. The leaves are brighter and they glisten with the glaze of the rain still coating them.
Over an inch of needed rain fell today in Tennessee. It cleansed the air and the foliage making the plants seem brighter and healthier. It's amazing how much better plants respond to rain than water from the tap.
The grass is subject to the rain effect as well, becoming more rich and green right along with the trees and shrubs. A greening rain is what we needed!
