Rain, thunderstorms, some hail
that's whats happening in the San Francisco Bay Area........
If you can, stay indoors where its warm and dry and read a good book.
A quick note on my Garden Design - as you can see, I designed my raised beds on the diagional. I wanted my beds to run north to south because its easy to remember to plant the taller plants in the rear, so shorter plants don't end up in the shade. Ingenious! It works....and its quite pleasing to the eye! And it turns out, they point right towards our new Chicken Coop, leading your eye to our proudest new centerpiece. It's quite perfect. Now that we have chickens wobbling around, our yard is like a living piece of art.
Check out my Curly Willow Tree....I see some green growth. She's my air conditioning during the hot summers months. The air is always cool and fresh beneath her. We prune her heavily every year and top her off, so she doesn't cast too much shade in the garden. I use the branches for stakes and make trellis'.
