Post-Andrea: Rain garden resilience

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.
