Evening Star in the morning

It rained most the night around here, adding another inch and a half to our September total of 2.61" We still have an inch to go to reach the long-term September average but considering that in August we had absolutely no measurable rainfall at all, I'd say we're doing pretty good. And there may be more rain coming tonight as the remnants of a Pacific hurricane drift our way.

You can't smell this but it's almost chocolaty

One immediate result, besides lots of red-clay mud tracked into the house, is the sudden appearance of the Evening Star Rain Lilly. These little guys, each on the end of a long stalk, are very delicate and don't usually last very long. In fact the stalks often lay over in the slightest of breezes or the lightest of rains.
