The Deluge

Yes, we're still in a drought here in California, one of the worst on record. Still, some rain must fall and fall it did.

Over the last 7 days, we received more rain than during the entire year of 2013. It makes a good down payment on our water deficit but the heavy downpours kept me out of the garden. 

During a lull, I got to take a few pictures to see how the garden is doing. The orchid bench is loving it, as you can see in that picture at the top of this post.

There's a couple of tomatoes peeking through the foliage of our hanging baskets.

Speaking of the baskets, being at the edge of the roof, they get the brunt of all this water.  Later in the spring, I'll need to redo them.

The roses are coming back and fast. 'Angel Face' is already showing a lot of buds.
