The rain fell yesterday. I had noticed on the weekend that my hydrangeas were starting to droop, the first tell-tale sign of heat & drought stress in my garden. And I did a little weeding, but the ground was incredibly hard.

I think it had been less than a week since the last rain. But with slightly hotter temps, and afternoon breezes, the ground starts drying out.

So I was glad it rained yesterday. It is cloudy today, too, and perhaps we will get some more rain this afternoon.

As hard and long as it rained yesterday, the ground is still fairly hard. I poked my umbrella tip into the earth to test how much moisture had seeped down. Not much.
