Rain, Rain, Rain – Not

It’s going to be a long, hot, dry spring/summer. The drought is here. This morning the sky is promisingly grayer, but at only a 20% chance it is not likely to rain here. Did you know that the percentage of rain means that it might rain in only that percentage of the area? In this case, only 20% of the San Antonio viewing area might receive rain. If it rains here in New Braunfels, then we are part of that 20%. Fascinating, huh?!?!

I went to Lowe’s this morning and bought a bunch of plants to put in the ground, despite the fact that I’ll be the waterer and not the sky. A few lantana will go in front, but the other lantana and climbing/vining plants will go in back, where the deer won’t be able to get to them. Our backyard is surrounded by privacy fencing put up by the neighbors. Love it!

Can’t wait to see “Water for Elephants,” which was a very good book.
