Garden update: Bring your own snorkel.
Tropical Storm Andrea blew through last Friday, dumping just over 5 inches of rain on us. The typical June rainfall for our area is 3.4 inches. It rained yesterday and again today; I don’t know how much.
I took these photos of the rain garden during a break in between downpours.
If we get any more rain, my plants will be forced to learn to swim.
Yes, that was some rain. Is the rain garden working well for you? It looks great!
Thank you! Yes, it is working well. I continue to be astonished at how well it drains. Maybe this fall I will put in another one. 🙂
Your rain garden in wonderful. I created a rain water runoff garden area in our yard that has done well. Unfortunately the reeds have done too well, overtaking the area, and threatening to choke out some of the plants like the spiderwort and blue flag iris. Seeing your rain garden has reminded me it is time to finish digging out most, if not all, of the reeds. http://underthecanopyoftrees.wordpress.com/
