If you've been awaiting a downpour from the skies with baited breath and it comes, do you feel like you can actually smell the rain? You can, and this pleasant smell has a name.
Six on Saturday after the Rain
After so many weeks of warm, dry weather, the garden and I were doing a happy dance this week to see some rainfall! It is amazing how the combination of rainfall followed by sunshine really makes everything in the garden so much more lush!
Squelching Into June
We've had monsoon like rain, which then coupled with a few warm, sunny days, has made the garden growth prolific! Everything is looking lush, green and healthy and we certainly won't be needing the watering cans for a while! Here are my pick this week for #SixonSaturday!
The Rain Shadow
If you have pots which nestle up against your house or a garden wall or fence, they may not be getting a good soaking during rainfall. This because they are in the rain shadow of the house, wall or fence: the dry area which is sheltered from rain-bearing winds.
Watering After Rainfall
You may be doing a happy dance if your garden has been blessed with rainfall in this bakingly gorgeous Summer but don't put away the watering can just yet!
