This morning, the view out front:
This weekend this happened (pea-sized hail if you can't tell):
(That's my high-pitched kitty voice. I don't really talk like that.)
While inside, it was like this:
Down in the garden, the big story is 3.3" of rain in 2.5 days.
That brings the rainfall total in my back 40 up to 10.075" since the current rain year began on July 1, 2008. So San Francisco is not a desert this year.
The sun came out a little bit.
Even plants next to the north-facing wall are getting some light now.
I'm very excited to see that Bartlettina sordida will bloom this year. It didn't last year because of storm damage.
I came out yesterday during the storm and tipped some of the bamboo which was swinging wildly into the neighbor's air space.
Long overdue pruning.
Today I planted out bronze fennel
and Hooker's evening primrose.
I was tempted to plant out Petromarula pinnata seedlings too, but decided to wait. These seedlings were struggling until I gave them some Miracle Gro about two weeks ago. Now they seem vigorous, but I'm going to wait until they get a little potbound, just to be sure.
That's pretty much all I have for you. I planted this little calla I "gave" Guy for Valentine's Day.
The kittens were loving it.
Just as I finish this blog post, it's raining again.
