Thunderstorms passed through this afternoon and evening, bringing some welcome moisture. It's been continually dry for weeks now, warm (and hot) sunny days in succession.
Fortunately, my perennials are pretty tough, but still, the Joe-Pye and Phlox need water after a week and half of heat and no rain. Not to mention the veggies!
The rain today brought out the nocturnal symphony -- tonight, largely the chorus of tree frogs, I think, in the forest ravine behind the house.
