After a long hot dry spell we had a deluge last night. This morning everything was so green and we didn’t have to water anything. In the pic below is part of my crop of luffa sponges that have just sprouted. I have 12 more plants in the back yard. You can also see some spearmint, lobelia (blue) and a tiny oak tree next to the left side of the pot. Growing plants outdoors is the only thing I like about summer.
