2010 First Daffodils after Downpour

I am so excited about seeing the first daffodils of spring, but have to apologize that they look rather sad after being out in the rain for the last 24 hours.  Never fear!  As soon as the sun returns, I will re-shoot!

Rain Delay

October 13, 2009

It’s been raining for weeks.  The  Labyrinth Garden is full of flowers but it’s too cloudy to get good photos.  I’ll go through my files and see if there are any good ones I haven’t posted.

Oops!  There is a set of photos I took right before it started raining that I didn’t post.  I’ll post those until the rain stops!

Sapo. responsible for the rain water gauge

This is my friend Sapo.  I acquired Sapo at an Arts Festival that my friend Linda took me to.  He’s some kind of metal art form, and very good at keeping track of rainfall.  He’s been working hard.  We had a torrential downpour in the wee hours of the morning.  Sapo was exhausted by the effort.

I have long ago forgotten the name of the man who made Sapo.  But I found a bird water gauge that is similar and really pretty.  I might get one of those to figure out much water the plants under my oak tree are getting.
