Last night at 10 P.M. I was outside with my submersible pump cleaning out window wells that filled with water. The temperature had dropped so much I had to put a jacket on. The garden is drenched and the dry river bed in back, well, let's just say it looks more like a pond.
More rain is predicted for today. I don't know when I will be able to actually get into the garden beds. If flowers are not along a walkway, it is just too messy to try to get a picture.

Hope you are getting ready for a great weekend.
